Trailer theft

It is reported that thieves stole a trailer from a local farm between 3pm and 4pm. Detectorists are strongly advised to keep their eyes open for any suspicious activity and take note, or photos of anything suspicious. Make sure you alert the farm owner to the problem.

A few months ago, another trailer was stolen in the night from a barn. The theft was spotted the next day and the police alerted. A week or so later, the farmer received a call from a person who was checking out the ID markings on the trailer and was surprised to find he had bought a stolen trailer.

Piecing the information together, the trailer must have been driven to a nearby county and put into an auction the next day.

Please keep your eyes open to any suspicious activity when pursuing your  detecting hobby
