A 43-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing six lambs from a farm in Berja.

According to reports, the Guardia Civil received a complaint from the owner of a farm that ‘one or more people’ had entered the property by ‘blowing up a wall’ forcing a metal fence and taking six three month old lambs.

In their investigation, officers searched neighbouring farms in the area in an attempt to locate the stolen and were directed to a farm in Rambla del Boqueron.

The owner of the farm reportedly told police that he had six lambs that matched the description of the stolen lambs, valued at an estimate €240, which were later confirmed as the stolen animals and a 43-year-old individual was subsequently arrested.
