VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Detectives said a 22-year-old felon is responsible for a couple of thefts, including one involving a goat he stole and killed to sell for meat.
Andrew Allen Brown of the 200 block of Tenth Court Southwest, Vero Beach, was charged with three counts of grand theft, three counts of dealing in stolen property, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, burglary and some misdemeanor drug charges.
Earlier this month, Brown went onto an unspecified property, removed the goat from a cage, shot it and then attempted to sell the meat, his warrant affidavit states. The owner of the animal told Indian River County Sheriff’s detectives it was a 4-H ribbon-winning goat.
Items stolen in other thefts included some electronics and jewelry, according to reports.
Brown remained at the Indian River County Jail Friday in lieu for $77,000 bail. He previously served 18 months in prison for burglary and grand theft in Orange County.
