INFORMATION SOUGHT IN CATTLE THEFT  Sought 

Polk County Sheriff’s Office Agricultural Crimes deputies are asking for the public’s help in a Cattle Theft investigation.

Sometime between 12:00 pm, on Sunday, December 11, 2011, and 10:00 am, on Monday, December 12, 2011, approximately 12 Hereford cows were removed from a pasture on the corner of Berkley Road (just north of Mt. Olive on the east side), in Auburndale.

The suspect(s) entered the pasture by cutting a link from the chain and luring the cows to the pens with feed.  All of the cows were heifers and small calves, most are red and white.  One was described as being a dark brindle color and having large horns with the tips cut.  Another cow was blonde with a white face and “banana” style horns.  None of the cows have any marks, brands, or tags. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Deputy Andrew McKee at 863.534.7502, or 863.298.6200.
