“The actions of whoever is responsible have caused the vehicle owners great financial loss and they have been left fearing for their safety. The offenders have not only shown a great disregard for another person’s property, but also put their own lives and those living nearby at risk.
“The farm is situated near a busy main road and I am appealing to anyone who may have seen this crime take place, saw any suspicious activity prior to it happening, or has information about those responsible to contact police in confidence.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 29:91 or the anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
