Valuable equipment owned by a tree surgeon has been stolen from a property on Main Street, Ulrome.
The crime happened between Friday, December 29 and Friday January 4, when someone walked into the rear garden of a property and approached a storage shed.
The shed lock was broken by an implement believed to be crowbar and the shed was entered. Five of owner’s chainsaws and two hedge strimmers were taken.
All other equipment in the shed was left untouched.
The victim has made enquiries with other tree surgeons to see if anybody has been approached with equipment for sale.
Two of the saws require a licence and all details are held on a database at the place from which they were bought.
If you have any information about the missing equipment please contact the police on 101 and quote crime reference 1950678.
