Local Rural Crime

1. Theft of Quad Bikes Etc
A large amount of equipment was stolen from a farm at Chilton near Thame on October 26 between 11pm and 4.30am. Seven garages and two vans were broken into. A garden stock fence and barbed wire were cut so the thieves could push a quad bike across a field in deep mud. Items stolen include:
Green Yamaha Kodiak 400cc quad bike stolen from a van.
Red GasGas 280cc Trials bike 2005.
Blue Kawasaki 90cc kids Enduro bike.

2. Attempted Tractor Theft
At approximately 3:15 p.m. on Sunday 28 October four hooded men appeared to try to take a tractor from a field at Lower Greenfield near Christmas Common. They were very aggressive (possibly on drugs) and crashed over a crop of valuable Christmas Trees as they drove off. This is almost certainly the same vehicle that visited the farm two weeks earlier. It was a silver Suzuki Vitara estate Y383CGC driven by a man, heavily tattooed on his neck. On that occasion, it was accompanied by a white Transit APO3**.
3. Cables Stolen
Two offenders wearing high visibility jackets loaded cables into an L200 Mitsubishi Pickup GF52 HNU at Crowmarsh Hill, Wallingford on 25 October the vehicle then made off towards Oxford where it subsequently rammed a police vehicle. No one was injured. Police reference: URN 145 - 25/10/2012.
4. Diesel Stolen
200 litres of diesel were stolen from premises at Cuxham, near Watlington on 24 October. The thieves also removed metal hinges, bolts and nails which were going to be used to repair fences. Police reference: URN 1106 - 24/10/2012.
