Police Find Tino Asprilla’s £50,000 Horse Two Weeks After His Drunk Friend Borrowed And Lost It

Police Find Tino Asprilla’s £50,000 Horse Two Weeks After His Drunk Friend Borrowed And Lost It

Police in the Columbian district of the Cauca Valley confirmed on Monday that they had found the missing horse of former Newcastle striker Tino Asprilla.

The prized animal – named Lucas – cost the ex Columbia internaional £50,000, and had been missing since July 17 after he’d let a friend borrow it to go to a local  funfair.

The friend in question then got drunk, fell asleep and woke up to find it gone, according to South American news outlet El Tiempo.

Asprilla had offered a reward of around £2,000 for anyone who could reunited him with Lucas, and the local police chief even orchestrated a vast search including the distribution of photographs and descriptions to Cauca Valley and the surrounding areas.

But after an exhaustive effort, Tino appeared to be resigned to the fact that his best mate was gone forever until he was found safe and sound in a manger a few towns over.

An investigation is ongoing to find out if he was stolen or simply ran away.

Alls well that ends well. Congrats, Tino!
