Anti-crime DIY ewe-nit

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

COPS traced a stolen sheep – then told the farm­ers to go and fetch it them­selves.

A trucker saw it be­ing put in a car on a moun­tain road and gave po­lice the rustler’s num­ber plate.

Of­fi­cers found the ewe graz­ing in a fam­ily home’s gar­den ten miles away. But they left it there and would not go with own­ers Pa­tri­cia Vaughan, 67, and hus­band Ivor, 70, to col­lect it.

An­gry Pa­tri­cia, of Bwlch, Powys, said: “You shouldn’t have to go alone to re­cover stolen prop­erty, as we did.”

Po­lice said: “We ver­bally warned a lo­cal woman, 34.”
