Agricultural thefts targeted by Farmwatch scheme

Related Stories

Police have joined together with farming unions in a bid to cut down on agricultural crime in Ceredigion.

The Farmwatch scheme aims to improve communication between the farming community and officers, and reduce opportunities for crime.

Dyfed-Powys Police want farmers to report suspicious activity around farms early to try to head off pre-arranged thefts from farm buildings.

The scheme also tackles fly-tipping, off-roading and livestock theft.

PCSO Trish Smith said: "One of the most vital things the farming community can do is to help us build up an intelligence picture of who is behaving suspiciously around farms.

"Many agricultural thefts are planned in advance."
