A theft of 19 pregnant ewes, the breed being English Mules, valued about £3000 occurred between Saturday, December 5, 2020 and Friday, January 22 at Berryleas, near to Fordyce, Banff.

The theft of such a large number of sheep would have required planning and the use of vehicles to transport the animals away from the area.
