Witness plea after tractors stolen from Pensthorpe reserve
Detectives have appealed for help from the public in tracing thieves who stole farm equipment, including two tractors, from one of Norfolk's best-known visitor attractions.
Intruders broke into the Pensthorpe nature reserve near Fakenham and targeted a workshop before making off with equipment including a grass-cutter, ride-on lawn mowers, generators and a concrete mixer, said police.
They also stole a trailer and two orange Kubota tractors – one a 2530 model, the other a B2710 – which, officers believe, were used to drive away the haul.
The crime was committed between 8pm on Wednesday, December 7 and 7am the following day. Police are still hoping to hear from anyone who saw the tractors, which they describe as being distinctive, being driven in the area around that time, or anyone who has been offered them for sale.
The estimated value of the stolen machinery was not available.
