The hunt is on to retrieve a £13,000 dumper truck stolen from a village building site. 

A JCB one tonne dumper was stolen from a building site on High Street, Sutton between 4.30-5.30pm on November 18. 

Ash Jilka, managing director of AJ Carpentry & Building Services, was alerted to the theft at the site which was “left wide open. 

“We had a dumper and digger parked on the site and a white Ford Transit van was seen looking in during the afternoon,” he said.

“I got a phone call to say the site was left wide open at around 5.30pm; I get there and the dumper had gone.” 

After the JCB dumper was towed away on a trailer, a key for the dumper was found on the ground nearby which was not a company key. 

“The neighbour said they saw the van parked outside the site,” said Ash.
