THIEVES with a penchant for red Hondas have stolen $9320 worth of farm machinery from a Wooragee property.
Beechworth sergeant Geoff Still said it was likely the thieves used a truck to carry away their loot, which included 60 lengths of railway line.
He said it would have taken at least two people to carry the 2.4-metre lengths of line, valued at $73 each — $4380 in total.
The thieves took a red Honda 125cc agricultural motorbike with a dint in the left side of the fuel tank and a red Honda fire pump.
The bike, worth $1500, had only done 600 kilometres.
“The burglary has happened between noon last Friday and 8.30am on Wednesday,” Sgt Still said.
The thieves also stole 16 steel mesh gates valued at $1840.
Police are appealing for anyone who saw suspicious behaviour near the property, on McGuiness Lane and Reids Way, to call (03) 5728 1032 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
