Stole 15 Lambs To Buy Drugs

fifteen stolen lambs in bazaTwo men were arrested after failing to explain how they had come by fifteen lambs… The police intercepted them just as they were about to enter the house of a known, small-time drug peddler.

The alleged thieves had stolen the animals, using a stolen livestock trailer to transport them, from a farm between Cúllar and Zújar in the Altiplano (Baza) area.

What had piqued the policemen’s suspicion was the fact that the two men were transporting the animals at three in the morning – where would such a vehicle being going, at that time, heading into the centre of Granada? So they decided to follow them.

The vehicle pulled up at a house in the north of the city, which is a bit of a rough area, to put it mildly. The animals were bleating away at the top of their lungs, so the ‘scene’ was unusual, to say the least.

So the police moved in, checked the ID’s of the men and the vehicle documents and found that the trailer had been reported stolen over a year ago.

Figuring out what to do with the two men, both with criminal records as long as their arms, was not exactly taxing but what to do with 15 bleating lambs at three in the morning?

Fortunately, the municipal veterinary service took them in for a few hours until the owner turned up to claim them.
