ORANGE, Vt. (AP) — Two people have been charged in a burglary at a Vermont farm where hundreds of pigs got loose.

WCAX-TV reports that according to court records a woman and her boyfriend admitted to stealing tools from the Sugar Mountain Farm in Orange in August.

That’s two weeks after the pigs broke free.

Walter Jeffries, the owner of the farm, says the pigs escaped from the enclosure after someone cut his fences. He says he’s glad arrests have been in the burglary but says he hopes more arrests are coming for the fence vandalism.

He says all of the escaped pigs have been rounded up and are back at the farm.
