Horse Thieves At Work In Putnam County

The loss is estimated at $6,000. That's what the owner of several horses that were apparently stolen from some property on Old Cane Creek Road says they were worth. The owner says he first noticed that the four animals were missing on Saturday. He told sheriff's deputy Bill Hunter that he checked the property and the surrounding area for signs that the horses may have wandered off, but didn't find anything and believes they may have been taken illegally. An investigation is underway.
