— A Smyrna man, who is missing three young goats from his farm, told police this week he suspects the man who took them might have bought goats from him in the past, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.

The man, 44, told deputies he was away from his home for several days and came back to find three 3-month-old male goats missing.

The goats are worth about $175 each, he told deputies.

A few days before the goats went missing, two men in a blue Ford pickup visited the man’s farm and said they were interested in buying a goat, according to the report.

One of the men already had the goat owners’ number because he had bought a goat from him before, the report states.

During the previous sale, the men told him they live on a 50-acre farm in York, according to the report.

The goat owner believes the men use the animals for food and might have taken the three goats while he was not home, the report states.
