Cattle thieves strike again

POLICE are investigating the theft of cattle from a property near Camperdown.

Fourteen Charolais heifers and steers were stolen from a property on the Darlington Road at Bookaar.

The cattle, aged 11 months, were stolen between January 16 and January 21.

Senior Constable Tony Hassett from Camperdown police, said the cattle were yarded about a kilometre off the road at the time of the theft and the offenders would have needed to use a stock truck.

He said it’s believed the offenders would have known the cattle were in the yards.

A stock truck with a blue crate is believed to have been in the area at the time. Twenty Charolais calves were also taken from the same property in May 2013.

Senior Constable Hassett said the theft was a reminder for people to be vigilant against stock thefts.

Anyone with information should call Camperdown police on 5593 1000 or contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
