PORTLAND — Portland police say five horses from their mounted patrol unit were turned loose Monday night during a burglary at the patrol’s stable. A spokesman says all five were found across a highway along the train tracks.
Sgt. Pete Simpson says officers arrested a 24-year-old man in the burglary.
Simpson says several neighbors helped contain the loose horses and keep them from wandering farther. Two of the animals suffered minor leg injuries. Three patrol horses were found safe inside the stable.
The spokesman says stolen property was recovered from the arrested man. Simpson says it’s unclear why the horses were released.
