50 beef carcasses have been stolen from the back of a lorry in Loughgall.
They were being stored in a 40ft, refrigerated container, which was taken from the Red Lion Road area in the early hours of yesterday morning.
It's since been recovered by Gardai in Dundalk but a significant amount of the beef has been removed.
