Officers are appealing for the public's assistance .
A number of sheep have been stolen from fields at Maxwellbank near Lochmaben, between 19/01/2021 and 23/01/2021.
There are indications that the sheep were walked out of the fields onto the Watchill road, thereafter into a waiting large livestock trailer or cattle truck. This would likely require the use of trained dogs/handler. Requesting any information to assist with the enquiry, particularly in relation to any suspicious activity, persons or vehicles at the time of the theft or in the days prior.
Please telephone 101 quoting ref 2192 of 23 January

A concerned member of the public contacted Police Scotland yesterday afternoon at midday to report concerns with regards a suspicious blue vehicle that had been sighted driving about residential streets in Kelso, Scottish Borders, with two males within.
The vehicle registration was given which relates to a blue Ford Transit Drop side lorry. This vehicle is registered to a male who is known for his involvement in Rural Crimes of dishonesty throughout Scotland and the North of England.

We are asking people to remain vigilant, check the security of their property, outbuildings, sheds and garages and to report any suspicious incidents to Police Scotland via 101. We also ask that even partial registration numbers could be noted and passed to police if known as further enquiry can be completed with such information and may also link in with other details given by other members of the Rural Alert group.
