Northamptonshire Police today reported that at some time between 20:00 last night (Thursday October 11) and 02:00 this morning, thieves took a gate off its hinges at Astrop Park Farm, Walton Grounds, then removed a very large and heavy piece of machinery that was blocking access to a storage area on the farm. The thieves stole a large fuel bowser containing approximately 1200 litres of diesel from this storage area.
Nothing was seen or heard by Walton Grounds residents and there have been no suspicious incidents reported in the area prior to this crime. It is possible, however, that King’s Sutton residents passing the Walton Grounds turn yesterday evening or early this morning may have noticed a vehicle towing the stolen bowser. If you have any information that you think may assist with the police investigation of this crime, please call 101 and quote reference number NP/32377/12.
