KERENS, TX — A man has been arrested for stealing three head of cattle from two separate owners in Navarro County.

The Navarro County Sheriff's Office says an agent of the Texas Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association alerted deputies to the reported theft of livestock from Kerens.

The suspect had allegedly stolen three head of cattle from two separate owners and taken them to a livestock auction out of the county.

NCSO detectives responded to the livestock auction and began the theft of livestock investigation.

Detectives placed a hold on the stolen livestock, and the owners retrieved their animals from the location.

A man was arrested Tuesday, December 10 and charged with two counts of felony theft of livestock.
