Default Thief Caught On Tape!!!

I hate to have had this happen and to be posting this. Tractor people are the best bunch of people that I know. Unfortunately, there are a few bad ones that have crept into our hobby.

At the recent auction we had in Germany, a tractor identification tag was stolen off of a small Kramer tractor. The thief was blatant enough to do it in broad daylight!!! There were hundreds of people around. He spent a considerable amount of time "casing" the tractor and waiting for the right opportunity when there was a lull around the tractor. We have numerous, numerous pictures of him.

Little did he know, the security system caught it all on tape! Traktormuseum Bodensee has offered a $1,000 reward, which we will also match for any information and identification of this thief that leads to his arrest. You can remain anonymous and earn $2,000!

Please take a second to look at the footage. I'd ask all of our European tractor friends to please post on forums in Europe as well! Thank you in advance for any help you can give us. This is the best shot we have of making an example out of one of these low lifes!!!!

That's pretty cool that you have such good video. I'm sure someone will recognize him with that clear of image. Too bad there weren't camera's setup when Tom Winland had his little engine stole last year.

Hope you get him!

Maybe his last name is Kramer. It's worth a try 👮🏼
