The latest variation of equine crime: Selling horses you don't own. Two fugitives from New Mexico were arrested in Las Vegas for allegedly fleecing at least 20 people to the tune of $183,000 by selling horses they didn't have.
Billy Sanchez, 39, and Rosalie Trujillo, 20, were taken into custody at a casino on the Strip. At the time of the arrest, Sanchez was playing in a poker tournament, according to a release from the U.S. Marshal's office, which did not disclose when the arrest occurred.
The release suggests the pair might have been involved in bogus horse sales since 2005.
