Honolulu police have released a suspect and made two more arrests in the theft of more than 20 purebred goats from a Kahuku farm.

The Honolulu Police Department said in a statement that a 25-year-old who was taken into custody on Tuesday was released Wednesday pending investigation.

One of the men arrested Wednesday for livestock theft is from Mililani and the other is from Waianae, police said. 

The owner of the Kahuku Goats farm says more than 20 purebred goats were stolen between Thursday night and Friday morning. Keal Pontin believes the thief used duct tape to keep the animals from making noise. 

Pontin suspects the thieves watched the farm, got to know its routine and then waited for a full moon to steal the animals.

Twenty-one of the goats were pregnant and 10 of them were days away from giving birth.

Police haven't recovered any of the stolen goats.
