Police appeal for dashcam footage after theft from New Byth

Police are appealing for anyone who may have dashcam footage who was near New Byth or on the B9027 on Sunday night to check it for anything that may assist them investigating the theft of a JCB

Officers are seeking the help of the public following the theft of a mini digger and trailer from a car park in New Byth. Sometime between 6 pm ad 11 pm on Sunday, 19 April 2020, a yellow and black JCB standard 8018 mini-digger was stolen from a car park in Old School Road in New Byth.

The digger has the registration mark RV 63 NBE and was on a plant trailer which had the registration mark WM 65 SYG. The trailer was secured with a padlock around the hitching point.

Door to door enquiries have been carried out and CCTV in the area is being reviewed. At this time we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a dark coloured Ford Transit style van in the area. We have reports of this van, which has a light coloured stripe around it, being seen driving into New Byth around 9.50pm that night, not towing anything, and then again at around 10.16pm, towing a trailer with a mini digger on it, heading north onto the B9027.

Anyone who may be able to help in this investigation is asked to call us on the 101 number, quoting the reference number 4289 of 19 April 2020. Likewise we would ask anyone who may have been driving in the New Byth area in a vehicle fitted with a dash-cam to check their footage to see if they may have captured anything which might assist us.
