Carjacker on meth abducts a man and his pet goat from a Carthage Adult shop

A man was arrested in Oklahoma after carjacking a truck from outside an adult store in Missouri — with a man and his pet goat inside.

Two men stopped at an adult video store in Carthage early Wednesday and the driver of the pickup truck went inside the store while the passenger — and his pet goat — remained in the truck, and took a nap.

That’s when 40-year-old Brandon Kirby jumped into the truck and took off. Kirby took meth as he drove the passenger through parts of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, occasionally pistol-whipping the victim.

The victim told police Kirby eventually let him and the goat go, dropping them off on the side of the road in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. He called 911 and reported the truck missing to OnStar.

OnStar representatives were able to slow the car’s speed to 15 mph and a low-speed chase ensued until “stop sticks,” ended the chase.

Police say Kirby jumped out of the car and ran off, dropping a mask and a gun before a deputy found him hiding in tall grass near Highway 412.

Kirby was arrested and charged with kidnapping, pointing firearms and felony possession of a firearm, according to jail records.

Kirby was also wanted on a burglary charge out of Osage County and has a number of felony convictions including assault and burglary.
