Stafford Co. Sheriff warns cattle theft on the rise

Earlier this month the Stafford County Sheriff’s office warned cattle thefts are on a rise in the state and asked area residents to remain cautious.

“The Sheriff’s office ask that you keep a close eye on your cattle counts,” the department announced via Facebook on June 14.

“These thefts are very time-sensitive cases. The cattle are usually sold out of state within 24hrs. after being stolen,” the announcement said. “If you see trucks and trailers that you don’t recognize in areas where they shouldn’t be please contact the Sheriff’s Office so we can check into this before anyone falls victim to this crime.”
