3 arrested after rustling pigs into a car
It seems that there is no limit to what livestock thieves can fit in the trunk of a car.
Police arrested three suspected hog rustlers who managed to squeeze the animals into the trunk of their car Sunday, according to a statement from the Public Security Ministry. With three people already in the car, where else were the pigs going to fit?
Police drove the three little pigs all the way home to their owners.
The sow-stealing suspects were handed over to the local prosecutor’s office.
Hiding stolen animals in the trunk of a car, believe it or not, is not unheard of in Costa Rica. On March 19, police arrested two people driving a car with a mule in the trunk. In July 2014, police got into a shootout with suspects before finding a green sea turtle in the boot of their car. In 2005, a cow was riding in the backseat of an informal taxi.
