Six people have been arrested and £60,000 worth of alcohol seized during a raid at a farm near Faversham.
Alcohol, a forklift, trucks and a tractor were all seized during Operation Nonagon, a cross border initiative to target those committing crimes in rural communities.
Kent Police took out a morning warrant at a farm in Sharsted Road, Doddington where they recovered a tractor and a ride on mower, both believed to have been stolen in a break in somewhere in Swale.
Police also discovered more than 35 shells of Range Rovers and Mini Coopers and a lorry full of alcohol.
A 59-year-old man and a 37-year-old man from Doddington and a 40-year-old man from Faversham have all been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and bailed to January 13.
A 14-year-old, 12-year-old and an 11-year-old, all from Faversham have also been arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft, relating to a shed break in Lower Road in November.
Police officer Dave Smith said: "Rural crime remains a high priority across the county and we will continue to work closely with those communities in order to take all steps available to us to prevent and detect"
"Once again this operation has been a success with a number of stolen items recovered from breaks around the county and a series of arrests made, showing our commitment to drive crime down in rural areas."
