Two stolen tractors recovered outside of Enniskillen

New Holland tractors recovered by PSNI

Police in Fermanagh have recovered two suspected stolen tractors and a low loader following a planned search outside of Enniskillen this morning, Friday, October 28.

Detectives from Reactive and Organised Crime Branch, supported by officers from Local Policing Teams and Roads Policing conducted a planned search of a property in the Derrylin Road area this morning. During the search two New Holland tractors and a Redrock Low Loader were recovered by officers. A 59 year old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. He was subsequently released on Police bail pending further enquiries.

Commenting on the operation Chief Inspector Clive Beatty said, “The recovery of this machinery is an example of our continued commitment to reduce agricultural crime and continuing work towards reducing opportunities for this type of crime in the local area.

“Rural and agriculture crime affects more than just those people who are direct victims; it impacts on jobs, the environment and the economy. It is a concern for all of us and I would therefore ask for assistance from the public in providing information that may support us in continuing to prevent crime and arresting those indiiduals or gangs that carry out offences within rural communities.”
