Officers urged farmers to be vigilant and to use simple security measures to help reduce risk, such as to lock tools and machinery out of sight and to keep gates locked with weatherproof padlocks.

 

Warning signs should also be put around the farm to deter potential thieves.

 

Detective Inspector Andrew Donnelly said: “Officers will continue to patrol across the area to provide reassurance to victims and communities.

 

“However, to assist us in our efforts to apprehend these criminals, I would appeal to the residents in our rural areas to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious activity or vehicles they see to the police.”

 

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
