The Civil Guard clarifies the theft of about fifty lambs in a farm in Puerto Lumbreras (07/12/2017)

Three people have been arrested and three more investigated as alleged perpetrators of the crimes of burglary, theft and receiving

The lambs were moved to another livestock farm where they changed the registration number of livestock farms (REGA) to move them to a Lorca slaughterhouse

The main ringleader, with five judicial requests in force and with an order prohibiting entry into national territory, moved from Portugal to commit thefts

The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the 'Plan against the abductions in agricultural and livestock farms', has developed the operation 'OVIS', an investigation aimed at clarifying the theft with force and theft of 43 heads of sheep in Puerto Lumbreras, which has resulted in the arrest of three people and three more investigated, as alleged perpetrators of the crimes of burglary, theft and receiving.

The actions, framed in the 'Plan against the abductions in agricultural and livestock farms', began when the Civil Guard received a complaint from a rancher in which he reported the theft of 43 lambs from a farm located in the municipality of Puerto Lumbreras , facts that had generated some social alarm among the livestock sector.

Agents of the ROCA Team (against robberies in the field) then began the investigation to clarify the facts, locate the stolen animals and identify and arrest those responsible for the robberies.

La Benemérita obtained the information related to the type of stolen cattle of young lambs, from the Murcian Segureño breed and ordered the recognition of livestock farms and other farms established as cattle pens, in order to locate them.

The investigations made allowed to identify a group of people, neighbors of the farm where the robberies were committed, on which the investigation was initiated.

The Civil Guard has found out that the alleged leader of this plot, a Portuguese citizen who, in addition, weighed up to five search warrants, issued by regional courts, as well as an order prohibiting entry into national territory, had been displaced , punctually, from Portugal to commit the robberies, after which he returned to his country.

Apparently and in the company of others of those arrested, he had assaulted on three occasions the cattle operation of Puerto Lumbreras to seize the heads of sheep.

To consummate the robberies, they broke one of the doors and, once inside, they took the animals that were transported by vehicle to another farm where they were sold, immediately, at prices well below market prices.

In this livestock establishment, allegedly, they placed the corresponding health identification number REGA (register of livestock farms) to drive them to the slaughterhouse camouflaged among the rest of the farm's own livestock.

As a result of the investigation carried out, agents of the ROCA teams of the Civil Guard have arrested three male persons, of Spanish and Portuguese nationality, aged between 27 and 49 years and have investigated three other men, of Spanish nationality, with ages between 18 and 20 years as presumed authors of the crimes of burglary, theft and reception.

It is estimated that the value of the stolen lambs is 3,500 euros.

The operation 'OVIS' has allowed, until now, to clarify three crimes of robbery with force in the same livestock farm of Puerto Lumbreras, although, the investigation continues open to determine the possible relationship of those now detained with other crimes of the same nature committed in the region.

The arrested and the proceedings and the animals have been made available to the Court of Instruction number 3 of Lorca (Murcia).
