A stolen mini digger was returned to its rightful owners after police implemented a “clever bit of technology” to find it.
Officers from Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s Rural Crime Action Team gave their colleagues a tip-off about the stolen piece of machinery.
The force is keeping exactly what they did close to their chest, but less than a month later the orange digger was tracked down in Eastrea.
A police spokesperson said: “Can we find it? Yes we did!
“With the aid of technology officers from the Fenland Neighbourhood Policing Team were able to track down and seize the stolen mini digger.
