Police detain horse in stolen car swoop
« on: June 20, 2007, 03:28:13 PM »

A horse was detained by police during an arrest operation over the theft of a vehicle in South Africa's sprawling Soweto township.

"We have apprehended a horse and two suspects for being in possession of a suspected stolen vehicle," police spokeswoman, Captain Lindiwe Mbatha said.

"Cops patrolling the township pulled over a cart carrying a stripped body of a brand new car, a Corolla Conquest, suspected to have been stolen.

"The cart was drawn by a horse with two suspects on board. They were locked for being in possession of a suspected stolen vehicle and will appear in court within 48 hours," Capt Mbatha said.

Capt Mbatha said by law they were not allowed to leave the animal and its "stolen" load in the street while the suspects were taken to holding cells.

"The animal had to be taken in with its carriage and the suspects. We couldn't leave the horse on the road because it was carrying a suspected stolen car," she added.

The horse was later released into the care of animal rights association in Johannesburg, but the two suspects were still behind bars and expected to appear in court

A horse walks into a courtroom.  The judge says, "Hey, why the long face?"






Thanks, folks, I'm here all week.
