Date of alert:
Wednesday, 8 March 2023
Cambridgeshire Police have issued a warning to farmers and those who own agricultural vehicles to ‘be vigilant’ following a rise in GPS guidance system thefts.
The valuable systems, which usually sit inside the tractor cab, allow farmers to accurately navigate to specific locations in a field to collect soil samples or monitor crop conditions.
The force’s rural crime action team (RCAT) has received six reports of system thefts across the county since the end of January, totalling more than £25,000.
