Stolen goat seller nicked

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

IN­VES­TI­GA­TORS have ar­rested a bud­ding wheeler dealer ac­cused of sell­ing stolen GOATS from the boot of his car.

Po­lice started work on the case back in May when some­one rang au­thor­i­ties to re­port five of the an­i­mals miss­ing.

The owner said he heard about some­one sell­ing the an­i­mals near his home so tracked down the ac­cused and took back the stolen goats.

De­tec­tives also met with a wit­ness, who told them a man in a white Ford stopped by his home and sold him four goats from the boot of his car.

The Hi­dalgo County Sher­iff’s Of­fice nicked Jorge Tor­res, 18, of Ed­in­burg, Texas last week, and the wit­ness iden­ti­fied him as the man who sold him the stolen goats.

Tor­res was charged with theft of fewer than ‘10 head of live­stock worth less than $20,000’.
