After receiving information from the public, the rural crime investigators executed a search warrant on a property in Gongolgen, about 65 km south of Bruerena, today, after 8 hours.

The police collected 64 sheep suspected of being stolen after removing the ear tags, replacing them and distinguishing the new ear tags.

Firearms and unarmed ammunition were also seized.

Inspector Cameron Whiteside, Crimes Against the State Coordinator, said the police were taking crime rust in rural areas seriously.

"Rural crime costs millions of dollars every year, stealing livestock, products and equipment, encroaching on others, and other crimes affect the livelihoods and well-being of the people.

Police Investigations continue.
