Renewed Info Appeal On Cattle Theft

Police have made a renewed appeal for information on cattle which were stolen from a farmyard in Co. Armagh in recent months.

Making the appeal, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in Armagh gave details on the incident, which took place in February.

In a statement on social media, local members of the PSNI said: “Folks, we need your help with the report of cattle theft we’re investigating.

Some time between 7:00pm on Wednesday, February 20, and 8:00am on Thursday, February 21, it was reported that a number of cattle were stolen from a farmyard on Granemore Road in Tassagh including a female red Limousine and two black and white Belgian Blues.

Acknowledging the length of time since the incident, the PSNI made a renewed appeal asking if anyone who was in the area during the time of the theft saw “lorries in the area being driven suspiciously”.
