STANFORD — The Lincoln County Sheriff's office is searching for suspects who allegedly broke into the Lincoln County Stockyards Nov. 5 and stole seven cattle.
Sheriff Curt Folger said the alleged thieves gained access to the stockyards by cutting a chain on the front gate. Then, they probably used a trailer to remove four cows and three steers from the business.
"I would say that they probably loaded up the trailer with all it could hold," Folger said.
The seven cattle — four holsteins, one jersey steer, one red steer and one black-and-white-faced steer — are valued at around $5,000.
The cattle are all tagged. Anyone with information about the theft is encouraged to call the Lincoln County Sheriff's office at (606) 365-2696.
