The Police in Wa in the Upper West Region have intercepted 14 sheep suspected to have been stolen from their owners in the area.
A police patrol team intercepted the sheep Monday at about 10:00 p.m around the Wa Municiapl traffic light area while they were being transported in a tricycle by some two unidentified men who bolted upon seeing a night police patrol team.
“It is believed that the sheep were stolen from an unknown destination,” a police statement said.
It is therefore asking anyone in the area whose sheep are missing to contact the Wa Police station for identification and collection.
“It should be noted that the animals would be disposed of as the Regional Command may direct after seven days” ending February 17 if the owner is not found.
Meanwhile, the police said the tricycle which was transporting the domestic animals has been impounded as part of investigations into the case.
