This guy was stealing transportation – he pinched the whole package. He made off with the horse, the truck and the trailer.
While her owner went into the farm store, the Paint mare remained in the parking lot, safe and sound in her trailer that was hitched to the truck. She was not safe for long, however.
According to Constable Rowdy Hayden, Precinct 4 of Montgomery County, Texas, someone stole the truck and trailer containing the horse. When Anita Lee, owner of the vehicles and Kat’s Trophy, the Paint horse, came out of the store, the parking spot was empty and her horse and vehicles were gone.
Hayden reviewed the store’s security videos and saw a green car circling around, then stopping at the truck and trailer. It appeared that a white male passenger stepped out of the car and got behind the wheel of the truck and drove it away, trailer and horse and all.
Hayden made public the stolen property as follows:
The missing truck is described as a 2006 white Ford F250 Super Duty 4X4 Super Cab, license plate BP75282. The trailer is a white 2010 S&H, license plate DYZH70.
Since the theft on February 8, Kat’s Trophy has been recovered. On February 12 Houston Police found the mare tied to a tree. She had no access to food or water. Her condition
Hayden said, "She was dirty, had halter burns on her face, and was missing a shoe, but otherwise she was in good condition."
Fortunately the horse has been reunited with Lee. The truck and trailer are still missing. Police is seeking information on the horse and vehicle rustler(s) and any information about the thieves.
Hayden said that when the thief is caught, “those responsible for the theft will face charges including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and horse theft.”
The public is encouraged to provide any information regarding this case. Please contact Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable's office at 281-577-8985.
