Stolen Lincoln gardening tools recovered after raid

A 17-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft after police recovered a quantity of gardening equipment from a Lincoln address which is believed to be stolen.

Police are appealing for information to try and find owners of the gardening tools after conducting a warrant at an address on Macaulay Drive.

Officers recovered an electric flymo lawn mower, three electric garden strimmers, a petrol strimmer, three wood saws and a barrel of what appears to be engine oil.

The 17-year-old man has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

PC Chris Pearson said: “After checking the Police systems there are numerous matches and I will be contacting potential owners.

“However, I suspect that the recovered items may not have been reported stolen to Police and I would like to urge anyone who has had any items stolen recently but hasn’t reported them to report them as soon as possible so we can identify who they belong to.”

Anyone who has had any gardening tools and equipment stolen is asked to contact PC Pearson at Lincolnshire Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 32140058758.
