A farmer who helped locals during heavy snow has been left devastated after thieves stole around £18,000 worth of equipment.
A hog roast van, motorbike, quad bike, tools and other farm equipment was stolen from Blaun-cwm Farm in Trefil, near Tredegar.
The incident happened at around midnight on Friday, March 23.
Farmer Mark Jones said the theft has left him feeling at ’rock bottom’.
"I left at around 10.30pm and they must have watched me go back to my house," he told the South Wales Argus.
"The fact they watched me has left me feeling on edge. I am shocked and I feel empty."
Earlier this month Mr Jones had used his tractor to help people stranded in the snow in nearby Tredegar and Ebbw Vale.
Friend Leon Cale said: "Just a few weeks ago he was helping out people in the snow off his own back.
"For this to have happened now is dreadful."
