A fully restored 1958 Land Rover, worth around £7000, has been stolen from a farm in Southwick near Trowbridge in Wiltshire. The Land Rover is a fully restored 1958 Series 2 green Land Rover with a green canvas roof. Its registration number, displayed on the old style black and silver number plates, is SCJ 883. It is an 88in short wheel base model and the front seats are so new that they are still in their wrappings.
The vehicle had been left secured on Fairfield Farm in Southwick at 6:45pm on Thursday 26th January 2012. At 2pm the next day someone noticed it had gone. Offenders had removed the lock from the front gate then towed or driven the Land Rover off the site. Locks were also removed from a barn and another storage area on the farm but it is not believed either of these were entered.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area overnight on the 26th January or who may have seen the vehicle as shown in the photograph to contact them. Anyone with any information in relation to the incident is asked to contact PC Ian Thackray on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
