Posted: Updated:

Police say a post on Twitter led them to a man and a woman suspected of stealing a pygmy goat from a Lancaster County farm.

Stefan W. Herbst, 20, Nazareth, Pa. and Julianne Staskel, also 20, of Philadelphia were charged with receiving stolen property for an incident that occurred between Saturday, Nov. 9 and Sunday, Nov. 10.

Officials said Herbst posted pictures on Twitter of a pygmy goat, valued at $ 100, and one of his followers recognized the goat as belonging to a farm in the area.

According to police, the pictures were taken inside Staskel's home in the first block of Cartledge Lane while she was hosting a party.

The owner did not give them permission to have the goat, which was returned to the owner who lives in the 100 block of Letort Road.
