A young man and woman from Sterling were arrested this week on charges they stole a neighbor's horse on Easter and then tried to sell it on a local radio program, Alaska State Troopers said.
Apache, a 12-year-old, brown-and-white gelding Appaloosa, vanished Sunday from his home on Robinson Loop in Sterling, troopers said. Apache's owner, Alvin Tomlinson, 61, reported the horse stolen that same day, along with the horse's saddle, bridle and halter.
Three days later, Tomlinson called troopers to say Apache was being sold on "Tradio," a popular radio program on KSRM in Kenai where people can sell, buy or trade just about anything.(more)
