Farmers warned over stolen vaccines
ANY farmers who are offered cut-price animal health products, especially Ivomec and cattle and sheep vaccines, are urged to contact the police, following a spate of thefts from agricultural merchants.
Dyfed-Powys Constabulary says that animal medicines worth about £35,000 have been stolen in south Wales in the past four months.
Police officers have asked anyone offered such products at low prices to contact them with details of any vehicle or individuals involved.
They are particularly keen to trace two occupants of a white Ford Transit Luton van. Both are white men, of average height. One is in his mid-50s with very stocky build, grey hair, balding on top with long grey sideburns. The other is about 40 years old, medium build with dark brown, short hair.
