Cattle have become victims in the ice problem plaguing the state’s regional towns Photo: SuppliedCattle have become victims of the surging ice problem plaguing the state’s regional areas, with addicts stealing from family farms to fuel their habit.

Cattle duffing – or cattle theft – has continued unabated for the past decade, despite increased efforts from the Stock and Rural Crime Investigation Squad (SARCIS).

SARCIS state co-ordinator Detective Inspector Mick Dowie said while firearms were major targets in rural criminal enterprise, anything worth money was fair game.

He said there were concerns increasing cattle prices and the demand for beef could increase stock theft.

“If you get a young person or even a family member on a property that is addicted to ice, then organised criminals can leverage off the person’s addiction, then we could see them facilitating the stealing firearms, machinery and even stock,” Det Insp Dowie said.

“Just because you live in the middle of nowhere does not mean you are immune to ice and to the crime that is associated with that drug. People need to be having this conversation with their family members and employees.”

He said while organised crime was not involved in every criminal transaction, large-scale duffing needed a great deal of support to be successful.

“Opportunistic stock theft will always happen.

“When you look at the greater picture, normally those that are well organised criminally to go and steal, for example, 800 bullocks from somewhere are able to get them away and dispose of them without any trace. That’s a highly-organised operation involving quite a few people.

“So you would think reasonably that a crime group that well organised would be involved in other crime as well.”

One such case involving hundreds of cattle stolen in a large mob was four years ago in the central Queensland town of Tambo.

“Some of the previous complaints we’ve had dating way back were large numbers, but in recent times we have had reports of mobs in their hundreds going missing.

“Back in 2012 there were about 800 head of bullock stolen from out at Tambo, which is about a million dollars worth of cattle.”

For someone to pull off a cattle duffing operation of this scale they would have to have insider knowledge, Det Insp Dowie said.

“You’d have to assume someone in the industry was involved, that has the capability to produce that amount of bullocks and it wouldn’t be out of the norm for them to filter the cattle through the meat works. Most likely they would go interstate to sell them.”

Selling off stolen cattle is not an easy prospect. Thieves have to re-identify the cattle and send them off piecemeal to feedlots and slaughterhouses to abate suspicions.

“Slaughterhouses and feedlotters are very helpful – they co-operate with our investigations. But if you are behind the eight ball by six months or sometimes three years, it’s very hard to play chase up.

“People might only muster once in a good year and in a drought they may not muster for two or three years because of the stress put on the cattle and there’s no money in it for that matter.

“That’s why we’re urging people, if they have a suspicion let us know”

The Crime and Corruption Commission’s Illicit Drugs Markets in Queensland: 2015-16 Intelligence Assessment found criminal gangs were making a push into regional Queensland.

“Organised crime groups are entrenched in the methylamphetamine market in Queensland,” it states.

“Interstate organised crime groups are targeting regional areas of Queensland for the supply of crystal methylamphetamine because of the higher profit margins associated with supplying these areas.”
