Thieves have stolen two guns from a vehicle parked at a Winterton farm. The theft happened at just after midnight this morning (Wednesday, August 26) at a property in Holmes Lane.
The owner of the guns and a friend had been out shooting and returned to the farm, leaving the guns and other associated equipment on the back seat of his white Toyota Hilux.
However, when they returned to the vehicle a window had been smashed and the guns stolen.
The first is a rare hand built Blaza R8 .242 bolt gun, with a scope and silencer, which was in a camouflage bag, along with eight to 10 rounds of ammunition.
The second is a Remmington 700sps .223 bolt action gun, with a Longbow Generation 3 ITT autogated tube scope and a silencer.
This was also in a camouflage bag, along with a military spec night view camera, a thermal imager and six to eight rounds of ammunition.
A chain saw was also removed from a nearby shed.

Humberside Police are warning people to beware of a new email scam by criminals claiming to be from Royal Mail. They've targeted businesses and personal users, persuading the victim to click on a link within the email that infects their computer with CryptoLocker ransomware.
The ransomware encrypts the victim’s system and a window appears requesting a payment, to be made in Bitcoins, in order to decrypt the files. Often it warns that unless between £300 to £360 is paid immediately, the cost will rise to £600 to £660.
The emails sent fall into two types:
It states Royal Mail is holding a letter and there will be a £5 per day charge if it is not collected. The email then instructs the victim to click on a link to get it resent, but instead the link infects the operating system with the ransomware. The second form of email states a parcel could not be delivered and is awaiting collection. A link on the email is provided for more information. This takes the victim to what looks like part of the Royal Mail website, where the victim is asked to enter a code – believed to be in the original email.
Once this is entered, the victim is instructed to download an application. Instead, the ransomware is downloaded.
