THIEVES have stolen two huge tarmacadam rollers worth £18,000 each.
The machines, which were Bomag tandem 120 models, were taken from a farmyard in Thornhill Lees while roadworks were going on the area.
The machines were being stored on farm premises overnight and the theft took place at the Lees Hall Road farm.
House-to-house enquiries have not produced any clues as to the identity of the suspects.
A police spokesman said: “At the time it would not have been unusual for people to see such vehicles as extensive roadworks were ongoing in Lees Hall Road and Brewery Lane.”
