A chappie from Vera, 43 year old J.A.M.C., has had his collar felt by the Guardia after being discovered in possession of 50 KILOMETRES of stolen irrigation piping.
He aroused the suspicion the Guardia after he was spotted going round local farms asking if they wanted to buy his irrigating piping.
La Voz notes that this is sufficient for 40 ha of farmland, and that J.A. is an old hand at this sort of petty larceny. The value of the piping was noted at €3000.
ROCA, the agricultural theft wing of the Guardia C, has a pat on the head.
