Angry Tractor taken.

Tractor taken, Hi all, one of our tractors was taken maybe you can help in keeping an eye on what is for sale on ebay, or if you should know of anything put up for sale.
Please pm me or you can post here, any links to this type of tractor put up for sale.


Here is the info.


Tractor is a nice Massey Ferguson 165 with multi power and with Duncan cab, at the time it had a MF front loader with a dubble bale spike, on the back was a Mc Connel fork lift, the Regn: at the time it was taken was PMW272H, hrs on meter apx: 3000 hrs.


The tractor also had Michelin front flotation tyres, on the rear Good Year radial and had rear wheel weights fitted.


The tractor was taken from the farm at Wormbridge in Herefordshire on Thursday 14 October between the hrs of 5-30 pm and 10-30 am Friday the 15 October.


We think the tractor was driven out of the shade and loaded maybe on a low loader of some kind in a lay by not to far away, it may have been driven towards Hereford or Abergvenny.
Thanks for any help you can give, we would dearley love to get it back .
Gibbmodoll.

After all this time the Tractor has been spotted, and is up for sale by
HJ Pugh & Co Auctioneers www.hjpugh.com
at HAZLE MEADOWS AUCTION CENTRE, LEDBURY, HR8 2LP Ledbury Pughs sale and yard in Ledbury Herefordshire, Police have been informed.

The Guy that placed the tractor in the sale is a transport Guy, who also has a good number of MF Tractors, and selling up, it is only 25 miles from where the tractor was taken.

The Guy also has a page on Facebook, and happens to have this handy low loader truck seen here,



that we think the tractor may have been loaded onto and taken away on.

More news and and when we get it, and the out come.
Holly

I would suggest you refrain from posting any further information unless it is your intention to prejudice any future court case or risk libel action.

Leave it to the authorities now.

At first the Authorities said they would take no action, but now looks like they may and look into it, the tractor is now three times the price of the pay out that was made to us, it is 100% the tractor.

We could tell a lot more but can't at this time, we will see what action is taken in the coming days.

Good news raids have been taking place

First today Police make raid on transport Guy, he told Police he purchased the tractor from a Guy for 5k and had name and receipt for the tractor, he told them he had hope to put it in HJ Pughs sale and get 10K for it.

Police put hold notice on tractor and will not be sold again.

Police then did raid on next Guy he told them he got it from a Guy for 2k and could give name, Police know this name as known crimail and raid three took place, it's now a major investigation, and looks like a major crim ring with lots of Tractors and farm goods.

It's on going, Police told us it's been a really good day, so looks like it not just us.

Progress!

I'm guessing the insurance company now own it...

Question is, will they 'sell' it back to you...?

Yes they do, we don't know yet it is the NFU and they are looking at it, in most cases of a new tractor and ten years the price would have gone down, in this case it's gone up, they paid 2k we said at the time theat was to low

They are now having to look at it and see what to do, we would have been better off not making the clam, but at the time we never thought the tractor would come to light.

We have had the Tractor back sometime, the guy that put it in the sale, we found out had been in Prison and even took parts off the tractor after Police put order on it

He may get done for that, lets hope so.

Looks like it was a gang of three, all are involved we think and taking a cut from the sale of the tractor, the case is still on going, but we can now sell the tractor, what we have of it

It's less it's loader and spool valve set that got sold at a sale, it was hard to prove they were from the tractor, and a number of other parts taken.

We have made good the missing parts and It's in HJ Pugh & Co Auctioneers sale tomorrow.

Today me Wisey and Combine Man have been down to the sale site to check all was ok, Combine Man had a photo of the Guy that had the tractor, and today we noted him down there checking out the tractor, and looking at the parts we made good that he had taken off, he did not know who we were, but from the photo combine Man had we knew it was him, he was there with a Lady friend.

The Tractor had been laid up on an old ind: est: and behind a hedge for 10 years before being put in the the sale and spotted.













More will be posted tomorrow after the sale with more photos.

Bob
