The Navarro County Sheriffs Office has just made an arrest in the investigation of several reported missing/stolen horses in the Kerens area.

Two of the stolen horses were located outside the county and we are hopeful they will be reunited with their owner as soon as possible. The NCSO developed a suspect in the case and later our detectives obtained enough evidence to obtain an arrest warrant. The suspect was arrested this afternoon at his residence near Kerens on a felony warrant for theft of livestock. This case remains under investigation.

I want to applaud the efforts of our Patrol Division and Detectives who worked to solve this case as well as our community who has been active on social media both reporting and sharing information on these thefts.
