A large quantity of Loughtan lamb meat joints have been stolen from premises in a rural location in the north of the island.
It was taken over the past month.
Police say it is quite expensive to buy and officers are asking for information from anyone who may have been offered joints of meat for sale.
A police spokesman said: ‘It would be quite obvious from the packaging that the items would not have been purchased in supermarkets and consideration should also be given in relation to storage and hygiene of the items after they had been stolen.’
Constable Kathryn Giles from Ramsey police station wants to hear from anyone who may have information to assist the investigation.
