£1,000 REWARD. Shields Bros have offered a reward of £1,000 for the apprehension of the individual/s involved in and for information leading to the safe return of all their stock birds and the stud book which were stolen from their Winlaton lofts between the early hours on Saturday, 29th June and the early hours of Sunday,June 30th. They would like to thank all pigeon people who have supported them and continue to do so throughout this traumatic time. The response has been incredible with telephone calls, texts, messages, social media posts from people they know of, but do not know personally.
Also for the kind words and amazing offers that are definitely helping them. Once again thank you all. If anyone has any concrete information that would see the return of this team of stock pigeons which have great sentimental and monetary value, as some of the lines go back to their late father’s pigeons.
Please contact us by any way you can directly or via a third party or to Whickham Police. The crime number is 082610L/19or to Rob Shield 07954 079657.
