Burglars take entire stables
The Matamata farmer who had an entire stables stolen from a shed on his property said he was stunned at the discovery.
The man, who did not want to be named, is baffled at how thieves managed to remove three stable blocks – including the lining and steel framework – from his shed on Mangawhero Rd, without being noticed.
"You can just imagine the shock when I opened the door," he said.
" There’s been stables here for six years, and there was just nothing."
He discovered the bizarre theft on October 24 and had last been in the shed on October 18.
