Surrey Police are searching for a group of thieves who are thought to have stolen a Reigate farmer’s partridges in a bizarre theft last month.

Officers were called to a farm on Slipshatch Road at 2.45pm on November 5 following reports of two men trespassing on private farm property and hunting deer.

Police visited the scene and searched the farm and surrounding land, but were unable to trace the men.

The farmer who dialled 999 also told officers that all of his partridges were missing from their pens, with officers believing they were likely stolen by the same men.
