18/4  Terry’s lane, Cookham.  Offenders have gained entry to the site by opening the front gates - they appear to have put the key code into the padlock as the code had already been inputted when caller arrived this morning.  Caller states a light has been removed from the top of the digger and left at the site.
CATERPILLAR 301.4C 1.5 ton digger S/N CAT3014CKLTK01287.  Usually, tracker systems, use the highest most point of a tractor, for the Tracker aerial - hence it’s removal.  If ever you see any farm equipment / machinery that has had the light on the top removed - that is a first indication that it may have been stolen.  The police watch motorways and roads, for equipment on trailers that have had these removed.
