The onsite caretaker was awaken at 12:30 a.m. to the sound of a truck and trailer coming down the driveway.
Before the thieves could enter the stable the caretaker confronted them, asking why they were there. Their response was that they were there to get four horses under the authorization of a certain person, which was immediately found to be a lie.
