The Praedial Larceny Prevention Unit in the Jamaica Constabulory Force is warning the  public to be careful when buying goat meat.

This is because of the theft of medicated animals which are believed to have been slaughtered and are being sold for meat in Westmoreland.

The Praedial Larceny Prevention Unit says the Westmoreland Agro Enforcement Team went in search of animals in the Hatfield district of Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland yesterday morning where 14 stolen goats were recovered and the carcases of four seized.

It says three persons were subsequently arrested.

Their identities are being withheld pending further investigations.

The Police are asking persons who may have had their goats stolen to come forward.
