A dispute over the ownership of five goats ended Friday with the arrest of a 62-year-old Southington woman.
According to police, the woman, Sandra Brunoli, was housing her two goats at a local farm since August 2013. Three more goats were born between August and February of this year and during that time, police said, a dispute developed between her and the farmer about who the five goats belonged to — and what Brunoli's access to the animals would be.
The warrant alleges that in late February Brunoli entered the complainant's property without permission and removed all five of the goats. The identity of the complainant and the address of the property were not disclosed by police.
Brunoli turned herself in after learning there was an active warrant for her arrest, on a charge of first-degree criminal trespass. She posted a $500 bond and is schedule to appear in Bristol Superior Court on March 10.
