Modern day cattle rustling bust in Chowchilla

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Authorities in the North Valley have arrested two cousins. They're accused of stealing calves from their employer.

Madera County investigators say Juan and Carlos Pedraz took several calves and 50 pound sacks of cattle feed from a Chowchilla dairy. The dairy owner told deputies the crimes had been going on for at least six months.

They believe many of the calves were sold, and then slaughtered. Both men are in jail, facing several charges including grand theft. They may also face deportation.
