More than 20 sheep have been stolen after what police believe was a targeted raid on a Hawke's Bay farm.
The theft of more than 20 Wiltshire ewes and lambs from a farm on State Highway 5, near Glengarry Rd, occurred overnight on February 10.
Eastern District Police said the property had been specifically targeted, because the offenders had to cut padlocks to gain entry and drive a fair distance to get to where the stock was located.
They asked for anyone who travelled on SH5 on the evening of February 10 who may have seen anything suspicious, or anyone with any information relating to this matter, to call 105 and quote 210218/9619 as the file reference.
