A stolen JCB WorkMax was successfully recovered yesterday evening in Mid Wales despite the efforts of a rather defensive herd of cows. The Automatrics MTrack radio tracking signal was picked up some 4 miles away from its final hiding place, signals were triangulated to identify the most likely location believed to be hidden inside buildings some 400 metres up on a hillside. The Police were contacted and soon visite...d the site with a search warrant.

The property was in a rural location surrounded by cow fields, a small herd of cows grouped together as if to try to block entry to the property but the three brave police officers from Dyfed and Powys Police valiantly pushed forward in their mission to find the stolen JCB which was soon found hidden inside one of the outbuildings. The police are continuing their investigations with arrests expected.
