  1. This is what is crippling our farmers both crop and vegetables and threatening our food security.

  2. This kind of theft has been happening lately island wide.
    I have a close family member who just last week experienced this with 20+ of their sheep herd. The thieves went with ALL. Even including newborn lambs, so that’s clearly way more than the $9000.00 that Piccadilly man lost. The police attitude to the situation is ‘don’t care’. They aren’t answering calls made to them, they aren’t investigating the situation and they took HOURS to arrive at the scene. More concern needs to be put in this situation at hand.

  3. The police can start investigation at the meat market. When people are selling lamb, they should find out where they got it.
