…ranch owner flees from police
A cattle farmer who owns a ranch in the backlands of Bloomfield Village, Corentyne, Region 6 fled with his employees on Sunday last (November 19) upon seeing a party of Police approaching; but one of his workers, a 27-year-old labourer of Tain Settlement, Corentyne, has been apprehended by the Police and is currently in custody assisting with investigations.
The police say they had gone to the Bloomfield ranch after cattle farmer Nandkishore Tagram of Number 62 Village, Corentyne, Berbice had gone to the Number 62 Police Outpost on Friday last (November 17) and lodged a report that forty (40) head of his cattle, including calves branded with his registered brand — DON14 – had gone missing after they were left to graze outside of his ranch at Number 62 Village Backlands.
Acting on information received, Police then proceeded to the Bloomfield ranch in the company of Tagram, but the ranch’s owner prevented the police party from gaining entry to the ranch to check if the animals were there.
As such, on the following day, a larger party of police ranks returned to the Bloomfield ranch, owned by a resident of the neighbouring village of Letter Kenny, Corentyne; and on seeing the officers, the owner and some workers fled.
According to the police in a statement, “twenty-three (23) of the missing cows, including three (3) calves, eighteen (18) of which bore the victim’s brand number, were recovered at the ranch.”
The owner of the Bloomfield ranch is currently being sought by the police.
