The 30-year-old and 32-year-old males stole cattle in June and July 2016.

Two males have been charged with the theft of cattle worth nearly £30,000 (approximately €35,600).

Fowlie, 32, and Arbuckle, 30, were convicted by jury at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday, December 20th, 2019 and sentenced on Friday, February 7th, for the incidents which occurred in June and July 2016.

North East Division's Rural Crime Lead, Chief Inspector Norman Stevenson, said: "The conviction of Lloyd Fowlie and Craig Arbuckle is very much welcomed and a testament to all involved that rural crime and the safety of those in such areas are taken very seriously.”

“Enquiries of these types will be investigated fully and whilst the evidence capture is challenging, with the support of the community and partners to Police Scotland, a conviction has been secured in cases like these.”

"We recognise the significant and devastating impact that rural crime can have on local businesses and the livelihoods of those living and working in our rural communities, which makes us all the more determined as a collective to identify and prosecute those responsible."

Lorna Paterson, Regional Manager at the National Farmers' Union, said: " NFU Scotland cannot ever condone rural criminality within our community and anything relating to rural crime, be it livestock worrying, or theft is a complete blight on the countryside.”
