Keba Chiddick and Alec Francis have been implicated in the theft of two valuable goats, leading to their immediate admission of guilt and subsequent sentencing.
Chiddick was charged with stealing the two Nubian goats worth $900 each while Francis was charged with receiving one of the goats.
Both individuals acknowledged their involvement in the offenses during a court appearance on Thursday.
On September 25th, the complainant secured his animals on his farm before leaving for a period.
Upon returning the following morning, he was confronted with the distressing discovery that two of his goats were missing.
Determined to uncover the culprits, the complainant reviewed his security camera footage, which provided critical evidence of the theft.
Armed with this evidence, he promptly reported the incident to law enforcement authorities.
Subsequent investigation of the footage led to the identification and apprehension of defendant Chiddick.
Following Chiddick’s admission, the police proceeded to the residence of Alec Francis. There, they discovered one of the stolen goats.
Francis, too, admitted his complicity in the crime, revealing that he had purchased the stolen goat from Chiddick for $200.
Chiddick and Francis were both ordered to pay restitution to the victim in the amount of $1,500 each.
