Police have suspect in goat thefts

HOWARD — Police say they have a suspect in the case of goats that mysteriously went missing from a farm in Centre County.

Seventy-seven-year-old Liberty Township resident Sylvia Nyman says that, first, six goats went missing in December. Then, she says 20 disappeared.

This week, the Centre Daily Times reports Pennsylvania State Police at Rockview said charges are pending against a suspect for the theft of six goats. The name of the person and the charges have not been released.

Neighbors have long complained about Nyman’s goats. Since 2009, the newspaper reported she has been on the losing end of three separate lawsuits brought by neighbors and the township.

Court documents show a judge ruled in favor of the township in October, prompting Nyman to have fencing put up.
