Thieves raid farmers’ crops


Share post:

Two farmers are counting hundreds of dollars in losses after being hit by crop thieves.

Duane Griffith, who cultivates one and a half acres in St James, said about 60 pounds of chives and ten pounds of kale were stolen. He said his employees turned up for work last Wednesday and realised crops were reaped. 

He said a pound of chives is usually sold for $5 and a pound of kale for $6.

Griffith said this was not the first time his produce was stolen, adding that he believed this recent incident could have been prevented if he and his workers had curfew passes.
