Some of the stolen sheep that police recovered in Santa Cruz.

North-Eastern Division police officers have returned eight stolen sheep to their owner. The sheep were recovered during an intelligence-led exercise on Wednesday, in which officers of the Santa Cruz Police Station, acting on information, ventured into a forested area approximately 500 feet off Moraldo Trace, Sam Boucaud.

Upon arrival, the officers found the livestock.

The report of larceny livestock was received by the officers of the Santa Cruz Police Station on Tuesday by the owner, following which an investigation was immediately initiated.

The exercise was coordinated by Insp Beharry, supervised Sgt Hosein and included other officers of the Santa Cruz Police Station.

WPC Nahkid of the Santa Cruz Police Station is currently leading enquiries into this case.
