Theft of Power Tools Near Stonehaven

Police are requesting farmers to remain vigilant following the theft of power tools from a farm near Stonehaven. The incident occurred between 8am on Thursday 8th July and 2pm on Friday 9th July 2021.

North East Division Crime Reduction Officer Constable Mike Urquhart said:

" Ensure all external doors are of solid construction with suitable locks or a closed shackle padlock fitted. Hide the contents from view using protective grills on windows if appropriate and ensure property is locked away at night or when not in use. Consider using a property marking product such as SelectaDNA. This makes tools less attractive to thieves as they are harder to sell and more ikely to be returned to the rightful owner if they are recovered by the Police."
