Police are appealing for information and witnesses following the theft of digger parts from a field in the Hannas Road area of Larne.

Sergeant Thompson said:

“It was reported to police that sometime between 5pm on Thursday, 16th March and 3.15pm on Monday, 20th March two batteries and a fuel pump belonging to a Doosan DX140 digger were stolen.

“Our investigation is ongoing and anyone who noticed any suspicious activity on the Hannas Road during this timeframe is asked to make contact with police.

“As part of our investigation we are also investigating a potential link between this theft and other recent agricultural burglaries in the nearby area. 

“We are especially keen to hear from anyone who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage via 101, quoting reference number 1279 of 20/03/23.

“I would also remind owners of agricultural equipment to be extra vigilant and ensure your equipment is secure.

“If you see plant or machinery moving, particularly during the hours of darkness in circumstances you feel are suspicious, give us a call.”

Alternatively, information can be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
