25 Lambs Stolen Near Scarborough

Published by Alex Taylor at 3:28pm 10th August 2018.

25 lambs have been stolen from a field near Scarborough.

It happened at Riggs Head, Irton Moor Lane and was reported to police yesterday (Thursday 9 August.) 

However, it's believed that the incident may have happened on Thursday 26 July. The gate to the lamb's field was left open by the suspects and the lambs were allowed free.

It's believed 25 of them were then taken. The lambs had recently been dipped and it is possible that their meat could cause illness if consumed.

Officers are currently awaiting the results of tests to determine the level of risk. In the meantime they are advising members of the public to be cautious of any lamb offered for sale under dubious circumstances and to contact the police if they have been offered any cheap lamb meat  for sale.

They are also appealing to anyone who has any information about suspicious people or vehicles seen in the area at the time or, if they are aware of anyone has tried to sell cheap lamb meat in the Scarborough area since the theft.

Anyone with any information of the incident is asked to contact police on 101.
