'Poisonous' Strawberries Stolen In Kent

Strawberries worth more than £300 have been stolen from a farm near Maidstone and police are warning they could be poisonous.

The 100kg of the fruit were taken from Hill Farm in Lenham Road, Ulcombe between midnight on Friday 30 June and 10am on Monday 3 July.

The fruit had recently been coated with a chemical to help growth which can cause poisoning to the stomach.

There have been previous incidents of theft at the farm and it is believed the same people are responsible for the latest incident.
The thieves are believed to have accessed the farm by cutting a fence, allowing a vehicle to get in and load the strawberries onto a vehicle before driving off.
Anyone with information about the theft can call Kent Police on 01622 604100.
Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
