CCTV image of tractor and trailer

Police in Nottinghamshire are appealing for help to track down a man suspected of stealing a tractor.

The unknown dark-haired man (pictured below) was filmed on CCTV camera minutes before an orange Kubota tractor was stolen from a farm in Gamston.

Shortly before 1pm on Thursday, 10 March 2016, three men drove onto the farm, detached the orange Kubota tractor from its trailer and loaded it onto their trailer. The thieves then drove away.

The 4×4 pictured has since been recovered and a forensics team has examined the vehicle for evidence for those responsible.

However, the tractor is still missing and all three offenders are still at large.

Appealing for help to solve the crime, a spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “Do you recognise the pictured man? Have you seen the tractor on someone’s driveway or land, under a tarpaulin or garaged?”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident 364 of 10 March 2016, or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
