SWA’s Investigations Team never know from one day to the next just what will turn up on their desk. They’ve handled everything from motor accident enquiries, to criminal defence and trademark matters, plus an in-depth investigation into counterfeit sex toys – but we’ll leave that one for another day.

But this week it was all about some stolen chickens.

Our client, who we’ll call Mary, called our office in an anxious state. It appears she had engaged a builder to do some work, but was not happy with the result.

When she queried his work, the builder allegedly ran off with her chickens as payment. And that’s when Mary asked us to do surveillance on her farm to find out how the chooks went missing.

 Given that the chickens had already gone, we told her she would be wasting her money.

 Whilst trying to be as sympathetic as possible we ran through some alternative scenarios – foxes, snakes, or even wild dogs perhaps?

 In the end we convinced Mary she would be better off making her pens more secure and restocking with fresh layers.

 So here’s the outcome – zero chooks located, zero fees charged. But time wasted – way too much.

 SWA’s Team always listens and helps when we can, but sometimes, you just have to let them know when the chickens have flown the coop!
