Officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Rural Operational Support Team (ROST) are appealing for witnesses and information after 11 goats were stolen from a freeholding in Wheathampstead.

The goats were stolen from land off Kingfisher Close sometime between 6pm on Tuesday 28 May and 1pm on Wednesday 29 May, causing a loss of nearly £4,000 to the owner.

ROST Sergeant Alex Winning said: “This incident occurred on a well-used road between Wheathampstead and Harpenden. Those committing the theft will have been in the area for some time and will have used a large vehicle to move the animals away from the site.

“If you were in the area at the time and have any information which may assist us, please get in touch. We’d be particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have captured dash cam footage.”
