A modern day horse thief was arrested last week after stealing a horse from a Hebron farm. Woman steals a horse

Wendy J. Holcomb, 48, of Granville, is accused of stealing a 15-year old mare and some tack from a home on County Route 31 on March 27.

The horse’s owner, who had acquired the horse several weeks prior, contacted police after noticing the animal was missing. Police discovered that Holcomb had been in contact with the previous owner in an attempt to gain documentation of ownership of the horse.

When confronted by the State Police, Holcomb admitted being responsible for the theft of both the horse and some tack equipment.

She was charged with two counts of petit larceny as well as one count of criminal trespass. The value of the horse and tack did not meet the threshold for grand larceny.

After processing, Holcomb was released on appearance tickets and is scheduled to appear at the Town of Hebron Court on April 20.

The horse, named Ruby, was returned to the owner with the assistance of the local Animal Control Officer.
