An early morning attempt to make some quick cash was short-lived for a Sabeto man as he was arrested by police following a tip off from a member of the Crime Prevention Committee.
Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro says the suspect approached the member at his home in Keolaiya this morning and attempted to sell the livestock which was allegedly stolen from a farm in Sabeto, Nadi.
Naisoro says the member was suspicious of the suspect’s approach and called Sabeto Police where the livestock matched the description of a theft of livestock report lodged by another farmer this morning.
Police were deployed to the scene at Keolaiya where they found the cow and calf and arrested the suspect.
Naisoro says the suspect traveled on horseback from Sabeto to Keolaiya.
The horse was also allegedly stolen from another farm .
All livestock have been returned to the two farmers.
