DOOSAN DX140 EXCAVATOR STOLEN BY PREVIOUS PERPETRATOR!

Long term CITS partners HAE, have been alerted by one of their members that they have subsequently fallen victim to theft, suspected to be by the same individual reported to CITS for previous thefts in Warwickshire. The perpetrator goes by the name Sean Charnley of SMC Groundworks. Mr Charnley gave a residential address in Morley, Leeds, West Yorkshire. 

The machine stolen in this instance:
- Doosan DX140 Excavator
- Serial Number: 020439

The crime follows a very similar pattern to the previous theft reported to CITS; the excavator was delivered to a farm address in Redmarley, Gloucestershire, on 6th October and the perpetrator made himself uncontactable at the point where follow-up hire payments were required. The machine was reported stolen on 30th October 2023.

The crime was reported to Gloucestershire Constabulary with crime ref no CR/0048110/23

It's evident this criminal moves around the country so we would urge members to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to the police and OPAL/ACE.
