- Rugby News - Operation Hillman, Warrant Executed
A warrant was recently executed in Birmingham as part of our Operation Hillman investigations into the illegal slaughter and theft of sheep.
The warrant was executed at a residential property in Birmingham following our successful application at Coventry Magistrates’ Court.
With the help of PC Rachel Smith from Rugby Police, PS Robert Shaw, PC Andy King, PC Kate Taylor, PC Andy Timmins and PC Craig Purcell detained 3 males and 2 females with property seized as part of the investigation.
Our investigation involves offences in the Alcester and Rugby Policing areas and is ongoing. Further updates will be provided when appropriate.
These are difficult offences to investigate and we rely on information from the Rural Community to direct our efforts.
Please continue to call Warwickshire Police with any information that may help and we will continue to follow up each lead.
