Thompson said investigators determined that a woman who told police that she is the horse’s previous and original owner had picked up the horse and is in possession of the animal. He said another woman is claiming to be the animal’s rightful owner.
Thompson said police requested a probable cause hearing in District Court to determine if their is cause to charge the woman with the theft of the horse. He said a hearing will be held, but that police do not plan to pursue the hearing or pursue charges against either woman at this time.
“We are looking into the possible involvement of others,” he said.
