Transit double cab and Timberwolf stolen

Hi Guys ,
White Colour Transit double cab tipper Registration number Y236 KTW with Timberwolf TW150DHB with serial number 206143024 A1 has been stolen this morning from Old woodley in Leeds LS16.

If anyone sees anything or has any information either ring me on 0797 333 0505 or John/Margaret on 01132 817 734.

These guys havent just taken John and Margarets livelihood but also a lot of gear belonging to them and the guys on the crew too. including saw, climbing gear etc.

please keep your eyes and ears open and lets stop this happening. If you are reading this and think this will never happen to me....Just take a moment to look over your insurance policy and make sure that you are covered for not just the van but also for the chipper too when working on site,etc.
With the present day financial crisis I have an awful feeling this wont be the last report.

Baz

Can you get some pics up of the Transit and Chipper..? Also guys, its worth remembering not to leave the keys in the van. Take them with you as you wont be insured.

Utter scum, lowest of he low, stealing the working mans tools of his trade. Sick of these people, may they be infested with all sorts of unpleasant poxes.

Re: Transit double cab and Timberwolf stolen

IMO you need to have trackers on any makor kit and all work vehicles....

Before somebody says you cant put a tracker on a chippers thats rubbish as it will be found way before they go to strip it etc and find it as most kit is left in a place for 24+ hours to cool down..
