Trio of sheep thieves on the run in NSW

AAP logoAAP 26/08/2016

A man has been threatened with a gun and a knife after stumbling across a trio of would-be sheep thieves in country NSW.

The man stopped his car at Bidgeemia, south of Wagga Wagga, last week after seeing three men trying to bundle sheep into a truck which was backed up against a fence.

He was threatened with a man brandishing a rifle as he edged closer, before the robbers left empty-handed.

The man then followed the truck towards Urana before he was confronted by another man armed with a knife.

Police are now hunting the three thieves and the white stock-carrying truck, which did not have number plates.
