Goats found in stolen car

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Northern Division police investigating a report of a stolen car were inadvertently thrust into praedial larceny case after they found two stolen goats in the trunk of an abandoned vehicle over the weekend.

The livestock and the stolen car were recovered along Noriega Trace, Bye Pass Road, Arima, on Saturday, hours after they were reported stolen by their respective owners.

According to a release from the T&T Police Service (TTPS), the green Toyota Yaris was stolen from its 51-year-old owner at his home at Demerara Heights, Wallerfield, around 10 pm on Friday.

The goats were stolen from a farm in the community shortly after. The animals’ limbs were bound when they were found in the locked trunk, but were not injured. They were later returned to their owner.

Hours later police received a report of a car-jacking at Woodford Street in Arima. Armed bandits robbed a 33-year-old man of his silver Nissan Tiida. The vehicle was found abandoned along Boys Lane, D’Abadie later that night. Police have not made any arrests in relation to both incidents.
