The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a report of livestock theft in Oliver Springs. The alleged victim told deputies he had discovered several months ago someone had stolen a pony from the field behind his home on Paradise Lane, but didn’t call police at the time, preferring to conduct his own detective work. He said that led him to believe the pony was taken to Kentucky and sold there by two men whom he says live near his property. The man told deputies the two men admitted to him they had indeed taken the pony.
According to the incident report, the victim provided names and approximate ages of the suspects, and a general idea of where they lived. Deputies spoke with one suspect; the conversation yielded “no useful information” about the crime.
