A digger was stolen from a building site last week, police have said.
Burglars unbolted the fence surrounding the site in Awsworth Road, Ilkeston, at some point between last Tuesday and Wednesday.
They then stole a three-tonne Kubota mini digger.
A police spokesman said: “The offenders would have required a low loader to remove the digger from the site.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
