It’s believed the two four-year-old owls were stolen from the farm sometime between Tuesday 2 February and Wednesday 3 February during the hours of darkness.

Police have issued an appeal to the public for help.

We are investigating and would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, or anyone who sees the owls or is offered similar owls for sale in suspicious circumstances to contact police in Newtownards.
