Alert message sent 03/07/2020 14:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Dear Resident,
Please be aware that we have had a recent theft of a John Deer Tractor from Wishanger Lane in Churt.  
The vehicle was stolen between Wednesday 1st July 2020 - 23:00hrs  into the early hours of Thursday 2nd July 2020 – 07:00hrs.
The vehicle was a John DEER Green and black tractor, registration HX65FBY – exact model unknown at this time.
I appreciate that this incident took place on the Hampshire / Surrey border however:
If you have any information regarding this incident please call Hampshire Police on 101 and quote reference number 44200241855.  Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800- 555111. Your call is valuable and the information that you supply may help us to reduce crime in your area.
Please use this as an opportunity to review your security around agriculture vehicles and whilst the below is not an exhaustive list - some of the pointers may help you in becoming a victim of crime.
Crime Prevention Advice 
  • Machinery should be security marked with DNA marking devices eg: Smartwater, enabling tractors and their parts to be traced back to their rightful owners.
  • Sign up to CESAR, an agricultural equipment registration scheme, which increases the chance of recovering stolen goods by helping police identify stolen machinery. This provides chips and data dots that can enable machines to be identified, even if they are victim to the common criminal practice of cloning and modifying stolen vehicles.
  • Have the Vehicle Identification Number etched on windows. This makes the vehicle more detectable and less appealing to thieves because they have to grind out the numbers.
  • Install immobilisers, chip keys and trackers as these are a simple way to deter criminals or track vehicles and can be fitted easily by an experienced agricultural engineer. Thatcham immobilisers are quality tested and allow greater piece of mind for a one-off cost.
  •  Fit a tracking device to your vehicle.  Where you can, keep your vehicles in a lockable garage or building. If this is not possible, consider installing security lighting
Regards, John.
