Message put out by Kent Police

We're hoping to reunite two trailers and a flat pack stable with their rightful owners.

The trailers and stable were among items recovered when officers searched a premises in #GreatChart on Thursday.

We've been able to identify a Mitsubishi Shogun, three motorbikes and two trailers at the site and enquiries into how they came to be there are ongoing.

But we're still trying to identify the owners of two trailers and a stable and are appealing for the public’s help.

PC James Murrell said: ‘The trailers are both specialist #forestry trailers that would probably be used by professional #treesurgeons or #landscapers or in the forestry industry.

‘One is a green #Kellfri forestry #trailer with a crane. The other is an orange #Camon chipper trailer.

‘They are both expensive pieces of equipment and we are keen to reunite them with their rightful owners.

‘The wooden flat pack stable had yet to be built and was being stored in a pile,’ he added.

If you think the trailers or the stable could be yours, or you know who they might belong to, please call PC James Murrell on 01843 222289 quoting reference number 15-0633.

We had saws stolen off a clearance site in Lindfield, Haywards Heath last week.
1x 200t with Sugihara bar
1x 201
Brushcutter
260 groundsaw.
They were watching the lads and waited for them to have a break. They ran in and took off across fields dropping gear on the way. Not expecting to find anything but just thought I would let people know who are working in the area. 👍🏽 feel sorry for them to be honest! Love using my new saws! Old ones were rubbish.
