Main article content
Officers are appealing for information from the public following the theft of high value plant machinery in Rode Heath.
At 9:14am on Monday 20 February, officers responded to reports that a tractor had been stolen from an address in Rode Heath between the evening of Friday 17 February and the early hours of Monday 20 February.
Officers attended the scene at a maintenance site on Knutsford Road and conducted a search of the area and found that an orange Kubota low loader, worth £12,000, had been stolen.
It is believed that unknown persons had forcibly gained access to the site, removing the tractor by cutting off the padlocks securing it inside a shipping container.
Nearby CCTV footage revealed that a person, dressed in a hoodie and jogging bottoms carrying a large carrier bag, was seen acting suspiciously outside the address at 3:55am on Monday 20 February. A vehicle, which was possibly seen carrying a low loader trailer, was also later spotted passing the site on Knutsford Road at 5:05am.
Officers are appealing to anyone with any information, dash cam or CCTV footage to get in touch.
Anyone with information should contact Cheshire police on 101 or enquiring via the website quoting IML 1483574.
Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
