According to recent crime reports, the Ministry of Agriculture has fallen victim to theft, specifically the theft of two batteries from a cold-storage truck.
The incident was brought to the attention of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) by a fisheries officer, who sought police assistance.
It is believed that the theft took place sometime between 12:45 p.m. on June 5 (when the batteries were last observed) and 1 p.m. on June 21, when their absence was noticed at the Ministry of Agriculture headquarters on Queen Elizabeth Highway.
The fisheries officer had parked a white cold-storage van, G-2603, on the eastern side of the ministry, facing north, on June 5.
It appears that the culprit resorted to forceful means to remove the batteries from underneath the vehicle.
Despite conducting a search for the stolen batteries, the efforts proved unsuccessful.
The matter is currently being investigated by the police.
