Theft of Agricultural Precision GPS Systems

Information Appeal & Crime Prevention Advice

Over the last week we have had two incidents where PAS/Satellite systems have been stolen from tractors. These were:

 1. Exmouth area where a 'Star Fire' dome was stolen from the top of a tractor overnight on the 13th/14th September 2022

(CR/086036/22 refers)

2. Torridge, North Devon where three similar systems were removed from tractors overnight on 15th/16th September 2022

(CR/086398/22 refers)

If you are offered any of these or have any information regarding these thefts, please contact us via 101, 101@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk or via WebChat using the above references.

Although these type of thefts are rare we encourage those using GPS systems to pin enable them (where possible), mark them with postcodes/etching/dna, and most importantly, remove them from vehicles when not in use. Finally, always store them securely when not in use.

Thank you
