Stolen equipment may not be far away

Recently I said here that I had tools and welding generator stolen.. well there is a possibility it's not gone far but I am not sure how to proceed, contacting police will be waste of time and it's not a good idea turning up on this person's yard and say have you stolen my equipment

We had a feed trough go once and had a good idea where it had gone. Emailed our police who handed it over to the neighbouring county (where said trough had been taken) phone call 45 mins after emailing to say it was in their bike shed at hq could we collect. Sometimes they can be very helpful as they are looking for an excuse to visit certain places of you catch my drift

Pretty sure the police are employed to look into such things. Could be wrong though

Why are police a waste? If you have firm belief that your property is with someone that it shouldn’t be I’m sure they will respond, at least I know my local rural team will.
Local farrier had to nick his sign written truck back one Sunday morning when they were all hungover as police wouldn’t touch it despite being visible from 3 sides of the camp.

Oscar Blaketon or Alf Ventras would crack it?
"green-grass again"

Joking aside, I had some welding gear stolen a few years back. I got tipped off as to where it was. Took a friend in with me expecting things to turn nasty and the bloke literally handed it straight back the minute we walked on site. Evidently he wasn't the tea leaf that had nicked it but was quite happy to be handling nicked goods

They're brilliant, catching speeding motorists, arresting anyone who has offended someone else , promoting gay rights , looking after protesters blocking rds , investigating anything WOKE , filling in forms , handing out crime numbers, but if you're unfortunate enough to have been the victim of rural theft you're basically on your own ,
