POLICE OFFICERS have issued an appeal for information after a rare agricultural vehicle was stolen from the village of Sapcote, near Hinckley.
The vehicle is an orange and black coloured Kioti MEC 2210 4 x 4, with the registration plate number of AE13 AZA.
It was stolen from a Sapcote-based farm on Coventry Road sometime between Friday 26 March and 10.30am the following day on Saturday 27 March.
The gate to the farm, which is usually locked, was forced open and entry was forced into two outbuildings.
The vehicle bears resemblance to that of a golf buggy – this particular vehicle is distinctive because of its windscreen and two-seat cabin.
It features a black metal mesh to the rear of the cab and an uncovered cargo bay at the rear.
This was not the only agricultural vehicle that was stolen – an Ifor Williams trailer, which is 5ft by 5ft, was also taken.
Allan Charles, a Police Constable for Leicestershire Police, has explained that the Police would like to hear from anybody who may have spotted the vehicle, as it is easy to identify.
PC Charles, said: “This is a rare vehicle and should be easily identified.
“We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle and the trailer or anyone who may have seen these or similar models for sale.”
Anybody with any information is being asked to contact 101, quoting reference 21*170405.
