A tractor which had been stolen in the Dungannon area was recovered in the early hours of Friday morning, 10 August by Police in Newry.

The theft of the New Holland tractor from a field in the Killycanavan Road, Dungannon was reported stolen to Police in Mid Ulster at around 3 am that morning.

Speaking to Newry Times, Chief Inspector Sandy Johnston said, “This is an example of how officers from across different Policing districts and disciplines work together in a bid to reduce incidents of rural crime.

“We are by no means complacent, our work continues, and we remain committed to reducing incidents of crime in rural communities.

“We are asking the public to help us by reporting suspicious incidents or movements to us as soon as possible,” Chief Inspector Johnston added.
