Kirkconnel sheep rustlers pursued
A flock of 35 sheep, worth more than £4,000, has been stolen from a farm in southern Scotland.
They were taken from a field at Kelloside Farm in Kirkconnel, Dumfries and Galloway, some time between Christmas Day and 14 January.
Police are investigating the incident, which they described as "sheep rustling".
A Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary spokesman said all the sheep in the flock had a blue marking on their coat.
Officers are appealing for anyone with any information on the theft to contact them.
