Officers from Staffordshire Police are appealing for witnesses after distinctive tractors valued at over £100,000 were stolen from a farm elsewhere in Staffordshire.
Sometime between 4pm on Friday, January 18th and midday on Sunday, January 20th, thieves forced their way into an outbuilding in Yoxhall and took six vintage tractors.
It is believed that the offenders used a low loader to transport the vehicles.
They are described as:
1) A green John Deere 4650 tractor with a cab. Manufactured around the late 1990s.
2) A red Massey Fergusson 230 Tractor, manufactured in about 1980.
3) A Massey Fergusson telehandler.
4) A red Massey Fergusson 135 tractor, in pristine condition with original tyres, manufactured around 1980.
5) A red Massey Fergusson 342 tractor with a cab, in pristine condition with original tyres.
6) A red Porsche diesel tractor, manufactured in about 1970.
DS Craig Wagstaff from Staffordshire Police said: “The investigation is on-going and we are appealing for anyone in the Yoxall area who saw anything suspicious or anyone who may have information about the theft to come forward and speak to officers.”
