Police in Frome are asking for help to find whoever stole two digger metal buckets from roadworks at the junction of Long Ground and Lock Hill.
The buckets were left on site on Friday, October 5, at 4.30pm and were missing when then the workforce returned on Monday, October 8, at 7.30am.
Police said the buckets were heavy and would have taken several people and a vehicle to move.
They would like to hear from anyone who saw people who looked like workmen near the diggers over the weekend.
Anyone with information should call Frome police on 101.
