“Operation Stock” Seeks Vehicle
Operation Stock is the police response to recent instances of illegal sheep butchery.
Following suspicious circumstances on a sheep farm in Warwickshire, just across the county/Daventry boundary, Police are keen to be informed of sightings of a white van challenged by a vigilant farmer on his land.
Police have full details of the vehicle: its registration ends “VXF” and it has writing on the back including a company name ‘Plantation Shutters’.
Northamptonshire Police wants to speak to the driver and/or occupants. Enquiries with the bona-fide company of this name indicates it has no connection with them, hence the Police interest.
If seen in Northamptonshire, please report on 101 or 999 depending on the circumstances, quoting “Operation Stock” (crime reference 1900036556)
