Thieves raid North-east construction site to steal tractor and trailer

Thieves have stolen a tractor and a power washer from a construction site in the North-east.

The incident happened on a site earmarked for a Muir Homes development in Peterhead between Asda and the area’s golf driving range.

A McCormick tractor with the registration RX06 XVY and a Bowser power washer were been taken between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Richard Cooper said: “Inquiries are ongoing and I would appeal for anyone with information to contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.

He added: “We are lucky to live in an area with relatively low levels of crime however it’s vital to not become complacent. Please ensure your valuables are locked and secure at all times and don’t give thieves a chance.”
