JCB vehicles are being targeted by thieves from farms in the Thetford area.

A teleporter JCB was stolen from an insecure barn between 3pm on February 4 and 5.30am the following morning in Bridgham.

Later on February 5 at around 8pm, an attempt was made to steal another JCB teleporter from a farm on the outskirts of Thetford.

Three men started the vehicle and drove it across a field towards the A1066, but on being seen, abandoned it and made their escape.

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 Thetford police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
