Theft of GPS Domes

rural-crime

Cheshire Police have attended a report of 3 x high value GPS navigation domes from three tractors in the Tattenhall area.

There is not only a cost for the replacement for this vital piece of technology but also a loss of earnings when managing crops, harvesting and cultivating which could also have a larger impact on the food chain.

Please take farm security seriously ensuring equipment is stored under lighting, in sheds or near CCTV cameras.

There are many ways to try and prevent the domes being taken such as:-

* Tamper proof bolts

* Remove the GPS dome when not in use or won't be used for long periods of time.

* Add a PIN to the software system to prevent the device being used easily

* Use GPS Anti-theft dome locks

If you have any information or CCTV please contact on 101 and quote IML739942

Kind regards
