A woman has been arrested on suspicion of burglary following the theft of nine micro-piglets from a Surrey property.

The animals, which are worth about £700 each, were taken from an address in Capel in March after the owner had advertised them for sale.

Four have since been recovered from properties in Shepperton and Virginia Water and reunited with their owner.

Surrey Police said a 22-year-old woman from Staines was arrested in Egham on Wednesday.

She has been released on bail until 4 June.

A 48-year-old man from Egham previously held on suspicion of handling stolen goods and a 17-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of burglary are also on police bail.

The seven animals were taken between 1830 BST on Sunday 27 March and 0830 BST on Monday 28 March along with two other piglets, which were found shortly after the burglary.

Three of the missing piglets are black and two are pink and black spotted.
