A plant hire firm in Chandler’s Ford has had a £16,000 mini- digger stolen in broad daylight.
Two thieves, who were both wearing ‘hi-vis’ jackets, were spotted brazenly loading Takeuchi mini-digger onto the back of a white van from a site in Sutherlands Court, at 0630 hrs on Friday, May 10.
The first suspect is described as a white male, about 40 years old, 6 feet tall and large build. He had a short dark beard, and was wearing a dark beanie hat and a long sleeved high visibility coat and dark bottoms.
The second suspect is described as a white male, about 35 years old, 5’10” tall with a slim build. He had a ruddy complexion and was wearing a light blue beanie hat, a long sleeved high visibility coat and dark bottoms.
