Nottinghamshire Police issue warning after dumper truck-style vehicle stolen from Edwinstowe
Police are warning owners of plant machinery to be alert after two large vehicles were reported stolen within hours of each other.
Officers are investigating the theft of two dumper truck style vehicles from building sites and believe the two cases may be linked.
One of the thefts was reported from a building site in Edwinstowe High Street.
It took place some time between 5pm on Thursday (September 3) and 7.15am the following morning.
The other took place at a site Leeming Lane North, Mansfield Woodhouse, between 6pm on Thursday and 6am the following morning.
Pc Mick Colley, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are currently working on the assumption that these two incidents are linked to each other and would like to issue a warning to people who either own or have rented plant machinery to pay particular attention to their site security.
“We are currently looking for two large yellow dumper trucks and would like to appeal to anybody who may have seen them on the move overnight on Thursday. These are very valuable pieces of equipment and we are eager to return them to their owners.”
Anyone with information that may help locate the vehicles should contact the police on 101, quoting incident number 80 of September 4.
