Home News 2 arrested for suspected cattle rustling
Two Sophia, Greater Georgetown men were on Thursday arrested for allegedly stealing a cow and taking it to the Nabaclis abattoir, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
Based on reports received, at about 03:30h, the Guyana Police Force received reports from an anonymous caller that a silver motor car bearing registration number PWW 1487 was in front of the abattoir discharging a dark brown cow from its trunk.
As a result of this report, a party of Police responded and on arrival at the scene, they observed the motor car with its trunk open, and two males were seen throwing water from a drain into it with a bucket.
Upon checking the area, they saw a dark brown cow inside a trench with two ropes tied around its neck.
The two males were arrested and escorted to the Cove and John Police Station while the cow was subsequently pulled from the trench.
Both the car and the cow, which didn’t have a brand, were taken to the Police station as investigations continue.
