HOUSTON - Monday, November 12, 2012 - A 22-year-old Houston woman reported to the Texas County Sheriff’s Department on Nov. 7 that a palomino horse she owns – valued at $1,000 – was stolen from her former boyfriend’s Verbena Drive property at Plato.
The woman stated that she had recently obtained a court order to retrieve her belongings from the man’s residence, and when she went there to get her things, the horse was gone.
The man told an investigating officer that the woman recently had a group of people beat his son with a baseball bat, and on that night someone had opened a gate to a pasture where horses were kept.
He said he assumed she had taken the animal then.
