Two Men Arrested For Theft Of Cow

Two men were arrested this week in connection with the theft of a cow, the Praedial Larceny Unit has confirmed.

An official of the unit told St Lucia Times that once convicted, a cow thief is liable to be sentenced to up to two years in jail, a fine of $10,000, or both.

A video of police officers making the arrest  of the suspected cow thieves was posted on social media.

It is alleged that the men stole the animal from Millet.

In the video, one of the suspects has a coil of rope in his hand.

The cow is also in the recording.

According to information obtained from the Praedial Larceny Unit,goats, rather than cows, have been the main target of animal thieves this year.

“With the exception of January, each month this year we have received one or two reports of goats being stolen,” an official disclosed.

The official recalled that just two weeks ago the Praedial Larceny Unit recovered a goat in Marc, after it was reported stolen from a farmer in the South of the Island.

He told St Lucia Times however that in most cases farmers do not press charges, saying that in attending court they will be wasting the time that they could be spending on their farms.

The official said the Praedial Larceny Unit has been advising farmers to ensure that their animals bear an identification mark, so that they can easily be recognised in the event of theft.

The unit has also been encouraging farmers to work with each other and be vigilant.
