Police on lookout for stolen sheep

By Country News

Police are investigating the theft of sheep from a property in St Germains last year.

Shepparton police are requesting information from the public that could assist in the investigation of the December theft, which saw about 150 sheep stolen from a rural property.

It is believed the offenders entered a Rathbone Rd property sometime between 6 pm on December 6 and 6 pm on December 8 in a truck, after double gates at the front of the property were forced open.

The truck was driven to a rear paddock, about 1 km from the farmhouse, where the sheep were stolen.

Anyone with information is urged to phone the Shepparton police station on 5820 5777.

Alternatively, a confidential report can be made via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
