A 47-year-old man is facing court in relation to the alleged theft of cattle worth $30,000 from South Coast properties.
The man was arrested by officers from ‘Strike Force Bushby’ – a special strike force set up last December to investigate cattle theft from properties in the Kangaroo Valley. It is part of the Rural Crime Prevention Team attached to the Monaro Police District.
During Strike Force Bushby’s investigation, two steers were seized from Moss Vale last January and nine Angus heifers were seized from a property in the Upper Kangaroo River in May.
NSW Police state that, following inquiries, a 47-year-old man was issued a future court attendance notice for two counts of cattle theft.
He is due to appear before Nowra Local Court on Monday, 20 August 2018.
