He added: “This is an expensive piece of equipment and one which is very important to the owner and for the work it is required to do. To be without this equipment represents a costly inconvenience in both money and time and it is shocking that once again a rural farming family has been targeted by the criminals.

“It is vital that anyone with any information or who witnessed any suspicious activity in the Hamiltonsbawn area contacts the PSNI and assists them with their inquiries and hopefully this machinery can be recovered and those behind this theft brought before the courts.”

If you see one or are offered one for sale or simply have seen one being moved in this area please call 101 and quite ref 930 of 28th July 2018.
