A trailer packed with stolen power tools has been found hidden in woods.
Patrolling rural crime officers followed fresh tyre tracks to the secluded stash in Hoads Wood near Bethersden.
A generator was found nearby and, along with the trailer itself, is also believed to be stolen.
The find was made on Thursday at around 12.30pm
The officers use their 4x4 to tow the trailer to the entrance of the wood where all the items were seized.
Inquiries remain ongoing to trace the owners of the property and to identify and arrest the thieves.
The officers work for Kent's Rural Task Force which is a specialist team made up of officers who are dedicated to tackling and investigating rural crime.
They work closely with the likes of the RSPCA, RSPB, Environment Agency and local authorities to address issues that blight communities.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in relation to the stolen equipment, or has details which could assist officers, should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting reference 46/2162/22.
