An early morning call received by our Specialist team of Investigators detailed the theft overnight of a Kubota Excavator – this time from Hampshire.
In February we have seen a worrying amount of theft in two main areas – Hampshire being one of these.
See below hot-spot update.
In the past few weeks, we've seen an increase in plant theft in and around two regions
Firstly – Yorkshire and East Midlands area
Secondly – Hampshire and Surrey
If you or your business have any plant in these areas, please be extra vigilant in securing your machines and sites pic.twitter.com/1IJPy1V1z6

The specialised CanTrack Investigations unit got straight onto the new case. Utilising the unique tracking technology within the CanTrack Protect unit a location not far from the theft site was indicated.
On arrival at the indicated area, our CanTrack Investigator could see the excavator. All company branding details had been removed but on closer inspection, it was confirmed as the stolen excavator. A quick call to the owners of the Kubota and a recovery vehicle was sent out to retrieve the excavator. Another quick recovery by our Investigation Unit.
Be vigilant, secure your machines and your site.
