Five cattle were stolen from a Carroll County farm during the evening of Friday, Nov. 9, according to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office news release.
The cattle – four black cows and one belted Galloway, which is easily identified because it is black on both ends and white in the middle – were taken from the property at 4982 Hwy. 47. The cows belong to Jim Sapp, according to the sheriff’s office.
A relative of Sapp’s allegedly saw a dark-colored truck with an aluminum trailer backed up in the barnyard loading cattle, according to Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Rose. Rose said the witness knew no one was supposed to be on the property and contacted law enforcement at 10:46 p.m.
The caller turned around and returned to the property. When he did, the driver of the dark-colored truck allegedly rammed through a gate on the farm and began driving on Hwy. 47 toward Sanders. The truck was pulling an aluminum horse or cattle trailer.
Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman said the trailer would have extensive damage to the left side.
“People are just pulling up in people’s farms and loading the cattle,” Kinman said. He noted that thefts of this nature have occurred throughout Kentucky. Kinman cautioned farmers to be aware of their livestock and any unusual vehicles in their area.
Anyone with information on the cattle theft is asked to contact the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office at (502) 732-7010 or leave an anonymous tip on the Sheriff’s website, CarrollCountyKySheriff.com.
