Two Men Charged Following Recovery of £200,000 Worth of Stolen Tractor GPS Devices

Two men have been charged after suspected stolen tractor GPS devices with an estimated value of over £200,000 were recovered in Hull last week.

Tomas Stankauskas, 32, of Beverley Road, Hull and Mantas Palionis, 31, of Abbey Street, Hull have both been charged with conspiracy to steal and were remanded in custody.

The items were recovered after officers from Humberside Police searched a car that they had stopped in a carpark on Holderness Road, in Hull, on Saturday, 30 September 2023.

Upon searching the vehicle, 17 high value farm GPS receivers were recovered from inside that were suspected to be stolen.

An investigation was launched, in conjunction with specialist officers from the force’s Rural Task Force and Operation Shield, and consequently a further 12 GPS receivers were recovered from an address along with eight GPS screens, all of which are suspected to have been stolen.

Detective Inspector Jason Gourley said: “We take all reports of crime incredibly seriously and I would urge anyone with information about any criminality to please get in touch with us.

“You can report information directly to us by calling our non-emergency 101 line or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.”
