Police Scotland are asking all members of the rural community to look out for any suspicious activity around their farms after a Starfire navigation system and screen, fitted to a John Deere tractor, was stolen from a farm near Annan, Dumfriesshire. The theft occurred overnight on 11th/12th September 2020. This is a UK wide issue with organised criminals targeting farms.
If you have anything to report, or someone offers you one of these devices to buy, contact the Police immediately on 101, or if a crime is in progress call 999. Please also report any vehicles, registrations and marks of vehicles that you find in suspicious circumstances.
- Police are encouraging these types of systems to be locked away securely when not in use.
- Tractors should also be secured by keeping them in locked compounds where possible, or near to farm buildings and security lights to minimise opportunities for thieves to work undetected.
