Po­lice warn farm­ers to watch for thieves

The Southland Times - - News -

South­land po­lice are warn­ing farm­ers to be vig­i­lant dur­ing day­light sav­ing hours. Se­nior Sergeant Cyn­thia Fair­ley said with the in­crease in day­light hours and farm­ers tied up with calv­ing, lamb­ing and milk­ing, it was an op­por­tune time for crim­i­nals to take ad­van­tage of any lapse in se­cu­rity on farms. She asked peo­ple to look out for their neigh­bours and the com­mu­nity, and let po­lice know if any­thing or any­one looked out of place. Farm­ers should also en­sure tanks were se­cure and locked, not leave firearms in ve­hi­cles and re­move keys and lock ve­hi­cles when not in use.
