The Hendricks County farmer who owned the animals said he would have to be paid more than $3,000 per animal before he would have considered selling them, Moore said.
The second man that visited the sales pavilion used his truck and trailer to help the other man transport the cattle to Johnson County. But that man left the sales pavilion Sunday when he heard Teverbaugh question if the cattle were stolen. The man said he wasn’t going to jail for stolen cows as he walked out, leaving his friend behind, the report said.
No one has been arrested.
