Farmer Wants Teeth To Battle Praedial Larceny

Farmer Wants Teeth To Battle Praedial Larceny

Local farmer Slade Matheson is calling for better protection for farmers against praedial larceny.

Matheson’s comments come following yet another bout of disappointment and frustration after claiming that he was again the target of a thief or thieves.

He says that after being away from his farm for a few days he returned only to find a quantity of green corn gone missing. This he says is unbearable as farmers like himself are forced to toil hard in the vineyard especially in these trying and challenging times. “Imaging in this hard time people robbing you,” he says in a frustrated voice.

Matheson who operates his farm in the Brunswick area says that only members of the community could fix the problem. 

 Although there is a call for more persons to get involved in the agriculture industry, Matheson thinks that the rampant praedial larceny across the island would serve as a discouragement to young persons contemplating getting involved in the industry.

 He also accuses law enforcement officers of not turning up to investigate the damages whenever he makes a report.

“Sometimes I does go as far as identifying a suspect who stole my crops” said the farmer, “ and not once they ever show up”. 

But when contacted a senior officer attached to the Carriacou Police station said that they have always advised Mr Matheson and other farmers in similar distress of the steps that must be taken prior to the police getting deeply involved in matters of that nature.
