Sheep theft info sought

The Tatura Guardian - - News - Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to phone Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Keast on 5826 2222 or De­tec­tive Lead­ing Se­nior

Po­lice are seek­ing as­sis­tance from the pub­lic to solve the theft of 70 pure­bred Da­mara ewes val­ued at $15 000 from near Murchi­son last month.

The theft took place from a prop­erty on Orr Rd, Murchi­son, be­tween Novem­ber 1 and Novem­ber 18.

‘‘We be­lieve a stock truck was likely to have been used in the theft of the sheep,’’ Murchi­son Po­lice Sta­tion Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Ricky Keast said.

He was told by the owner that the sheep stolen were the pure­bred breed­ing ewes from the flock and a num­ber of sheep on the prop­erty were left be­hind.

The Da­mara breed is a meat breed that sheds its wool and does not re­quire shear­ing.
