Van full of horse meat leads to Florida arrest

Reuters reports:

MIAMI — A man whose bloody fingerprints were found on a van full of horse meat was arrested on Wednesday, the latest in the Miami area to be charged in connection with black-market butchering of horses for human consumption.

Juan Martinez-Gonzalez, 44, was charged with improper disposal of dead animals and creating a sanitary nuisance, Miami-Dade police said.

Investigators traced him through the fingerprints left on the blood-smeared white van, found in May when a homeowner reported seeing a suspicious vehicle.

Police found two coolers full of horse meat and a bag of horse legs inside the vehicle and arrested its owner and a passenger on loitering and prowling charges.

Police were trying to link the meat to a horse carcass found elsewhere and the investigation is ongoing.
