Pub­lic asked to help track down stolen live­stock

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

Po­lice are seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in find­ing three stolen cows af­ter of­fi­cers ar­rested two al­leged rustlers from East Hawke­bury Town­ship.

The Hawkes­bury On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice de­tach­ment has re­cov­ered 13 of the 16 head that were taken in late Sep­tem­ber from a farm in Ferme-Neuve near Mont Lau­rier, Québec.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the where­abouts of the an­i­mals that have an “IJ” brand is asked to call Con­sta­ble Wal­ter Van­der­goten at 613-632-2729 or 1-888-310-1122, or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), where you may be el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive a cash re­ward of up to $2,000.

The re­cov­ery of the 13 cows, val­ued at $26,000, and the ar­rests cul­mi­nated an “ex­haus­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion” by the Hawkes­bury OPP de­tach­ment, which was made aware of the theft Sep­tem­ber 26, when three of the stolen cows were brought to the Live­stock Ex­change Auc­tion in Van­kleek Hill to be sold.

Con­sta­ble Van­der­goten tracked down the cat­tle in early Novem­ber, at a prop­erty on Aberdeen Road in North Glen­garry Town­ship. It was de­ter­mined that a pas­ture was rented for the stolen live­stock, and that the an­i­mals were ne­glected and had lost a lot of weight. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in the re­cov­ery of ten ad­di­tional cows.

De­cem­ber 2, Jean-Phillip Dion, 34, of La Grande-Mon­tée Road in East Hawkes­bury, was charged with pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime, fail­ing to pro­vide ad­e­quate food, wa­ter, care and shel­ter to an an­i­mal and theft.
