An appeal for witnesses has been made after thieves targeted two JCBs in the Thetford area.
A JCB Teleporter was stolen between 3pm and 5.30am on February 5 from an insecure barn in Bridgham.
An attempt was also made to steal another Teleporter from a farm on the outskirts of Thetford at around 8pm the same day.
In the second incident, three men started the vehicle and drove it across a field towards the A1066 but were seen. They abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity around the A1088 and A1066 near to Thetford, particularly if it involved the movement of farm machinery and possibly with the use of a low-loader.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Danny Leach at Thetford Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
