Motor vehicle seized in St Elizabeth with stolen goats

ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica— Lawmen assigned to the St Elizabeth police seized a motor vehicle after it was found to be transporting stolen goats along the Holland Bamboo main road in the parish on Saturday, July 2.

Reports are that about 1:30 am, a team of lawmen were on patrol when they signalled the driver of a black Toyota Yaris motor car to stop. The driver disobeyed and sped away. The vehicle was pursued by the team and on reaching Holland Bamboo main road, the Yaris motor car stopped and two men exited the vehicle and ran. The vehicle was subsequently searched and two goats were found inside the trunk.

The St Elizabeth police are urging members of the public who may have had their goats stolen to contact the Black River police to assist in locating their owners.

Investigations are ongoing.
