Security advice after trailer stolen from Stokesley area
1:10pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
POLICE are reminding owners of trailers to take some security steps to protect the vehicles and prevent them being stolen.
The advice follows the theft of an Ifor Williams trailer from moorland on Kempswithen Moor, near Stokesley, on August 29.
The trailer measured 10ft by 8ft and had a green water bowser on it and police are appealing for the public to help track it down.
Sergeant Nick Hill said: “If you know who stole this trailer or have been offered one for purchase in suspicious circumstances, I urge you to contact the police straight away.”
He added: “If you do need to leave equipment such as trailers unattended in fields I advise you to take a few steps to prevent them from being stolen by opportunist thieves.
“I would suggest fitting a wheel clamp or securing it to something anchored to the ground.
“Owners should also mark the frame of the vehicle with the their postcode. Although this may not stop a thief, it will help the police to return it to the owner when it is recovered.”
