Detectives are appealing for witnesses after an expensive piece of machinery was stolen from a farm in Malton.

A yellow JCB loader which is worth around £40,000 was taken sometime between 7pm on Saturday 17 March and 9.30am on Sunday 18th March 2012.

Officers believe that the loader, which carries a 60 registration plate, was either transported away from the farm on Butterwick Road using a low loader or was simply driven away from the scene by thieves.

Officers are appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the theft to get in touch.

Detective Sergeant Steve Paxton, of Scarborough CID, said:

“This is an expensive piece of machinery which the owners are obviously keen to have returned to them.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen a JCB being driven in the area overnight between 17 and 18 March or saw one being carried on the back of a lorry.

“Any information could be vital to the investigation, therefore I urge anyone who can help to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as they can.”

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for Steve Paxton or Scarborough CID.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
