Pony missing from man's yard

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man reported his 4-year-old pony stolen Sunday.
Jose Nicholas Ruano Ayala, 31, of Briarwood Terrace, told the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office that someone took the tan buckskin pony that was tied up with a rope outside.
Capt. John Sifford said Ayala believes the incident occurred between 11 p.m. Saturday and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
Ayala told police that the pony could not have gotten free on its own because the knot was tied so tightly.
He said the gate at the back of his property that was found open would have had to be forced open because it was covered with overgrown plants.
The pony has a white star on its nose and a white patch under its left chest. It has no identifying tags or implants.
The pony is valued at $1,500.
Sifford said there are no leads in the case at this time.
