POLICE have located two calves taken from a stock route.
Police from the Major and Organised Crime Squad (Rural) at Roma executed a search warrant on a property situated in Yuleba North.
Police were investigating an instance where calves had been removed from the stock route.
Detective Sergeant Scott Jackson said police responded to a complaint where the cattle were being moved along the stock route near Yuleba.
“A male person was confronted loading calves into his motor vehicle,” Detective Sergeant Jackson said.“After being approached by an employee the calves were released back to the drover.”
“After the cattle were locked into the camp on dusk, it was noticed that two cows had not mothered back to their calves.
“Drovers then retraced their steps and it was discovered two calves were missing.”
Police investigations located two calves in possession of a Yuleba North man.
The calves were seized and later returned to the owner.
Police said any person collecting animals from a stock route could face charges of stock stealing.
