CYPRESS, Texas (FOX 26) - Concern is growing among neighbors in the Cypress area after multiple horses were taken from two different properties within three days.
“Heaven forbid one of these horses get on a road. Not only are they a danger to themselves, they are a danger to vehicles because the potential of striking a horse with a car never turns out well,” said Heather Kutyba of Cypress.
Kutyba is the latest victim. On Sunday morning, three of her horses, including two that are 13 months old, were taken out of their stalls and led off her property in the 12 thousand block of West Shadow Lake Lane.
She says the thieves rode up to her property in a golf cart and broke the lock off the back gate to enter her farm. They also took a saddle and bridle.
Kutyba says she realized her horses were missing hours later and began to call for them. Luckily, they were back on her property.
“From the looks of the location of some of the equipment, it does look like someone may have had a bad ride and it may not have worked out in their favor and maybe that they just turned them loose,” she told FOX 26.
A few doors down, Kutyba’s neighbor, Jackie Breazeale, had her golf cart stolen. She believes it was the golf cart used to access the back of her property.
Breazeale says her golf cart was stolen Sunday morning.
“I sort of figured they needed that golf cart to haul her saddles and bridles off,” Breazeale said jokingly.
Breazeale says the golf cart was spotted close to where 2 stolen horses from Isabella Farms were found last week in the backyard of a vacant home in the Barwood subdivision.
Kutyba, Breazale, and Dawn Chamorro, of Isabella Farms, believe the thefts were committed by the suspects.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the suspects in the Isabella Farms case were described as two black men, about 17 years old, one is about 5’10 and 120 pounds, and the other 5’6 and 140 pounds.
In Kutyba’s case, there are no suspect descriptions yet.
Isabella Farms says she’s offering a $10,000 reward for information that needs to an arrest.
