A 51 year-old Nyngan man was charged over alleged stock theft onJanuary 10.

The Darling Rural Crimes Investigators were working off information they received last year. On Tuesday they executed a crime scene warrant on acreage at a property in the Nyngan area and over the following two days police inspected hundreds of cattle and identified 11 that were allegedly stolen from a Tullemore Road farm.

Police will allege the cattle had their identification removed, but further ear markings connected them to their original owner.

The investigations are ongoing and the man has been served with a Future Court attendance Notice, he is expected to appear before Nyngan Local Court in the coming months.

Local rural crimes investigator Tim Connolly said there was conservatively between $10,000 and $15,000 worth of cattle recovered.

“The owner was very happy with what happened. There were seven adult cows which were conservatively $1500 each and there were four calves, there’s easy $10,000 to $15,000 there,” he said.

Detective Senior Constable Connolly said this is a timely reminder for farmers to be vigilant when it comes to marking stock and reporting rural and/or agricultural crime.

“Stock records should be up-to-date and if anything happens contact the nearest police,” he said.

“There is a lack of reporting when something happens, we’re hoping this will encourage people to be more vigilant.”
