The six vintage vehicles were taken sometime between 4pm on 18th January and midday on 20th January from an outbuilding in Yoxall.

Police say they believe a low loader was used to transport the tractors:

  • A green John Deere 4650 tractor with a cab. Manufactured around the late 1990s. 
  • A red Massey Fergusson 230 Tractor, manufactured in about 1980.
  • A Massey Fergusson telehandler. 
  • A red Massey Fergusson 135 tractor, in pristine condition with original tyres, manufactured around 1980. 
  • A red Massey Fergusson 342 tractor with a cab, in pristine condition with original tyres. 
  • A red Porsche diesel tractor, manufactured in about 1970.

DS Craig Wagstaff from Staffordshire Police said: “The investigation is on-going and we are appealing for anyone in the Yoxall area who saw anything suspicious or anyone who may have information about the theft to come forward and speak to officers.

“The tractors taken are very distinctive, and we hope that by sharing these photos it will remind any members of the public who may have seen them being moved.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 277 of 20 January. Alternatively, they can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
