Suspect Vehicles Reported In The Vicinity Of Reported Horse Tail Thefts
The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office has uncovered new leads in the recent string of horse tail and mane thefts.
Lieutenant Gus Holbrook says through interviews with horse owners, four vehicles have been seen in the vicinity of the thefts.
They include a van, flatbed pickup truck and an older car.
It is also believed that there are at least two men, possibly Hispanic, within the vehicle when the thefts occur.
Lieutenant Holbrook says there’s not much detail on the suspect vehicles, as most of the thefts were reported several days after they occurred.
“We still do not have a pattern with either dates or locations. There is no pattern. The only consistency that we’ve had…these vehicles that were spotted, were only seen once in the area.”
The suspect vehicles are:
1. White Econoline van.
2. 1997-2000 silver or primer in color extended cab Chevy truck.
3. 1980 model passenger vehicle (looks ‘beat-up”).
4. Black flatbed truck with a welder in the back.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office.
So far there have been 27 victims, and a total of 63 horses that have had their tails/manes cut in Natrona County.
