A man has been arrested after police recovered £30,000 of stolen agricultural equipment in Whepstead.

Officers carried out a warrant at premises in the village on Tuesday morning and found a Simba Cultipress 6.6 metre cultivator which was stolen from Leys Road, in Tostock between February 4 to 9.

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft and taken into custody at Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre to be interviewed.

He was bailed to return to police on April 8 while further enquiries are carried out.

PC Mark Bryant, rural crime officer, who was involved in the warrant, said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to locate this stolen property and it shows what can be achieved when rural partners work with police.”
