Two people are thought to be involved in the offences, one of which is shown in this CCTV image.

 

If you can identify this man or have information that could help with the investigation - call the police on 101 quoting 16/19638/19.

 

Alternatively you can call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting the same reference number.

 

The thefts come as police hunt thieves who stole 143 sheep from farm on the border of Cheshire and North Wales.

John Lightfoot, who runs a flock of about 400 ewes on land in Pulford, Chester and Rossett, Wrexham, said the sheep had been taken some time between 9pm on Monday (January 28) and the following morning (January 29).

 

Mr Lightfoot, who farms in partnership with his father Roger, said: “We checked and fed the sheep at 9pm on Monday and the next morning they were gone.

 

“It looks like a professional job because three lots of sheep had all been mixed up. It looked like, whoever it was, had sorted them out and taken what they wanted.

 

“For 143 sheep to vanish is a massive loss.”
