Malvern Editorial 5th Feb, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

VALUABLE olive trees worth around £10,000 have been stolen from a Ledbury farm.

Seven of the nine-foot trees, each weighing around 1.5 tonnes, were taken from Argus Farm in Dymock Road between 12pm and 1pm on Wednesday, January 29.

They were stored in large pots at the farm and were seen being carried away from the farm towards Ledbury by a blue Volvo lorry with a 40-foot flatbed trailer.

PC Dave Olczak said: “This is a high-value theft of some very distinctive property.

“Someone must have seen this lorry carrying the olive trees going past as the offenders left the area and I appeal to any witnesses to contact Ledbury police station on 101.

“I am also urging anyone with information concerning the current whereabouts of the trees, or if they have been offered such items for sale, to make contact.”

Anyone with any information can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
