Vermilion Parish juvenile accused of cattle theft

ABBEVILLE — A Vermilion Parish teenager is accused of stealing 24 cattle from a parish cattleman.

State authorities say the 16-year-old suspect was found at a stockyard trying to load stolen heifer calves and "hide them elsewhere."

KATC-TV reports the calves have since been returned to the owner, who estimates the cattle value at $26,400.

Meanwhile, at the same stockyard, the manager reported 17 cows were placed in a back pen and no one knew how they got there. The manager contacted a state Department of Agriculture and Forestry brand inspector who said the cows were stolen from the same Vermilion cattleman.

The department, in a news release Thursday, said the juvenile confessed to sheriff's deputies about stealing the cattle. He was released after posting $2,500 bond.
