PA State Police trooper affixes out of service sticker to Carper's tractor trailer.New Holland, PA- Members of the Pennsylvania State Police Ephrata Crime Unit Troop J MCSAP Unit, Troop J SET Team, and the State Police Equestrian Unit along with the PenDot Weight Detail inspected all incoming motor carriers and trucks along with Domestic Animal Haulers to the New Holland Sales Stables in New Holland, PA on Monday April 5, 1999 for Agriculture Code violations, Vehicle Code violations and equipment violations.

Carper with citations in hand and an out of service sticker on his windshield.The Pennsylvania State Police put David Carper's tractor trailer out of service after the vehicle failed a motor vehicle inspection. Carper also had logbook violations.

There were nine horses on the trailer, none of which had Coggins Test or Health Certificates. Horses moved interstate are required by law to have Coggins Tests and health certificates.

Carper's vehicle is out of service.

The Carpers are the same company, Frank Carper & Sons, that owes Essex County, NY $11,100 for their 1994 conviction for the illegal transportation of horses. The case was nicknamed the "Horse Popsicle Case" by the media after Assistant District Attorney, Debra Whitson now with the New York State Attorney General's Office, called the frost covered horses, "horse popsicles"..

State Trooper escorts Kiehl to waiting police car.Pennsylvania State Troopers served Arlow Kiehl, Watertown, NY with a warrant for his arrest inside the auction barn for failure to answer a non traffic citation issued by Pennsylvania State Police.

Kiehl is told to empty his pockets.Mr. Kiehl or his drivers have been previously convicted or pled guilty to the illegal transportation of horses in New York state on several occasions. Most recently a driver for Mr Kiehl, Carlton Simmons, was convicted after trial in Kirkwood, NY on 8 counts of the illegal transportation of horses and fined $800.00 by Judge Benjamin Weingartner. The horses were being transported from the auction in New Holland on the bottom deck of a double deck trailer. Hogs were on the top deck of the trailer, above the horses.

State Police pat down Kiehl before placing him in patrol car.Recently, the PA Department of Agriculture issued both of these companies permits to transport domestic animals in Pennsylvania, regardless of the fact that their convictions in New York are grounds for denial of a permit in Pennsylvania.

Dealers and haulers of domestic animals are required under the PA Domestic Animal Act to be licensed.Kiehl is placed in patrol car to be taken before the Judge.
