Farm equipment stolen

Officers investigating the theft of farming equipment in West Dorset are appealing for witnesses to come forward and issuing images of some of the stolen items.

Between 5pm on Saturday 27 June and 8am on Sunday 28 June 2020 a burglary occurred at a farm in the Tincleton area.

A tri-axle flatbed trailer, an IEA cattle crusher, a trailer lock and a chain and padlock were stolen.

Police Community Support Investigator Paul Bosley, of Dorset Police, said: “As the cattle crusher was not secured properly to the trailer, it would have made a lot of loud banging noises if driven away.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity in the area to please get in touch.

“I would also urge anyone who recognises the stolen items and has seen them for sale in unusual circumstances to get in contact.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55200093240. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call freephone 0800 555 111.
