Theft of Trailer and Plant Machinery - Huntly

Police are warning rural residents in Aberdeenshire to remain vigilant following a theft of a trailer and plant machinery from a property near Huntly, Aberdeenshire. The incident occurred between 5 pm on Monday 10 January and 8.30 am on Tuesday 11 January 2022. Items stolen from the driveway of the property include a Challenger Trailer, towable cement mixer and Nilfisk Diesel pressure washer.

North East Division Crime Reduction Officer, Richard Russell said:

"It is good to take a minute and consider the security of your home, farm or business. If you think the security can easily be overcome then so will a thief.

"CCTV is a useful tool but it must be remembered that CCTV on its own is not a deterrent to criminality and should always be combined with appropriate physical security. Fit lighting to illuminate outbuildings, courtyards and house. Thieves do not like to be seen.

"All vehicles and plant of any sort should be secured with the keys safe in your possession or locked in a key cupboard. If the property is high value consider fitting a tracking device or data-tracking chip. Consider marking or customising your trailer etc. so they are easily identifiable and keep photographs of the property along with any serial numbers."
