Motocross bikes, quads, mini diggers and more were part of a haul of stolen goods recovered by police in Surrey.
Officers spotted a Scania HGV at the Ripley junction of the A3 and brought the vehicle to a stop. Upon searching the vehicle, officers found tens of thousands of pounds worth of machinery, including two mini diggers, a bobcat, two quad bikes and four motocross bikes, believed to have been stolen from properties in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire.
The driver of the lorry, a man in his 40s, was arrested and has since been released under investigation. Officers are now continuing to investigate and working to reunite the stolen machinery with the victims involved.
Chief Inspector Michael Hodder of the Surrey and Sussex Roads Policing Unit said: “This was a fantastic effort by our Roads Policing team. We will continue to protect the public, deny criminal use of our roads and recover people’s property.”
