Baaa-d time for farmer after sheep stolen from Hawke's Bay farm
A Hawke's Bay farmer has suffered a loss of more than 20 sheep after they were stolen in what is believed to be a targeted raid earlier this month.
The theft of the Wiltshire ewes and lambs from a farm on State Highway 5, near Glengarry Road, occurred overnight on February 10.
Eastern District Police said it appears the property has been specifically targeted, as the offenders had to cut padlocks to gain entry and drive a fair distance to get to where the stock were located.
Police are asking anyone who travelled on SH5 on the evening of February 10 who saw anything suspicious, or anyone with any information relating to this matter - to please call 105, or report it anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote 210218/9619 as the file reference.
