Theft of Fertilisers since 2012

Question

Could you please answer the following for me for the period 2012-2017, providing the date :

1) How many, if any, fertiliser thefts were there in the period?

2) For the above, what type of fertilisers were stolen, in terms of chemical make up?

3) What overall quantity, if known, was stolen in each case?

4) Was the perpetrator ever caught/ charged for each case?

5) In the case of 4, was the fertiliser ever recovered?

Answer

We do not record a property type of ‘fertiliser’ we have therefore carried out a key word search of the modus operandi (MO) and the description of the property listed as stolen.

In respect of Q2 &3 this is not centrally recorded. Please find the information in the table below, there were no charges for these offences and the property was not recovered.
