The young men who hail from Success and La Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara had placed four of the goats valued $120,000 into the trunk of the tinted AT212 Toyota Carina car, PRR 3799.
A member of the West Berbice Sheep & Goat Association said he passed the car close to where the goats grazed at Profit and became suspicious.
Two of the men were sitting in the backseat of the car with the doors open and they were on their cell phones.
He immediately contacted his uncle, Lloyd Sahadeo who owned the goats and he headed to the scene. As he approached, the men sped off and he gave chase.
The car then made an about turn but by then the Weldaad Police Station had already been contacted and set up a roadblock.
When the men realized that they were cornered they stopped the car before the roadblock and started to run. Angry residents joined the police in chasing and catching the men.
The member said he was on the alert after he and other farmers had been losing their livestock for some time now.
