    Thieving Gits!

    Thought anyone who has had livestock or kit stolen might be interested in this, word is local farmer found his dog tied up in their byre with a load of others, reckon they have been covering a wide area of the country. Police have been stockpiling items. might be worth a bell to police Scotland on 101 and ask to get put through to Elgin Police.

    It says I'm up to my limit of free views on the P&J - haven't looked at their website for years, ho hum.

    Any chance you could cut n paste or give us a synopsis?

    Sounds like an ideal situation for a bit of rough justice.

    I know a chap that did similar to the ones in the OP. I won't buy off him on principle but most farmers seem keen to do so. They seem to think they will be getting a bargain if there is a chance it's a bit dodgy.
    I am of the opinion that if you don't buy dodgy stuff then it won't get stolen in the first place. I think I am very much in the minority unfortunately.

    Elvis I agree with you . If you buy stolen goods then probably one day it will be your stuff that's for sale.

    Can't find anything on google about it ever coming to trial. what's the betting that despite being caught red handed with half the stolen property in scotland they managed to wriggle out of it?

    Yes, sending the right message to like minded individuals that Scotland is a soft touch for rural crime!
