Thieves have made off with an expensive piece of farm equipment from a property in Co Armagh over the weekend.
A Kverneland Power Harrow was stolen in the Hamiltonsbawn area sometime overnight on the July 27 into the following morning (Saturday).
DUP Assemblyman William Irwin MLA has slammed those responsible.
Mr Irwin said the theft represents a “costly inconvenience in time and money” for the owners of the machine and appealed to the public to report any snippet of information which could lead to its recovery.
“This is an expensive piece of equipment and one which is very important to the owner and for the work it is required to do,” he added.
“To be without this equipment represents a costly inconvenience in both money and time and it is shocking that once again a rural farming family has been targeted by the criminals.
“It is vital that anyone with any information or who witnessed any suspicious activity in the Hamiltonsbawn area contacts the PSNI and assists them with their inquiries and hopefully this machinery can be recovered and those behind this theft brought before the courts.”
