Police hope that randomly-caught image could help crack stolen tractor case

South Jutland police say the photo shows two men in the act of stealing a red Jonsered lawn tractor from the shop on 30 May at 14:20.

Google has authorised police to use the photo. South Jutland police are asking for anyone who recognises the men, trailer or vehicle to contact them in Sønderborg.
