Agents catch couple accused of trying to sell stolen cattle
Anthony Whittley and Jasmine Boone are spending some time behind bars after being accused of stealing 17 head of cattle from a ranch in Kansas and trying to sell them in Oklahoma City.
The arrest came after an employee with an Oklahoma City Livestock Barn recognized the brand on 17 steers being delivered, knowing that it was not the brand of Whittley and Boone.
The suspects, both of whom are 27, were taken into custody when they claimed their “check,” the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said.
“At this time our office is seeking charges in Kansas for Felony Theft and Criminal Damage to Property, but we also anticipate the filing of additional charges with regards to a similar case from late November, where 8 cows were stolen north of Columbus,” Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves said.
The pair face charges in multiple states.
