Calf in Back Seat Leads to Rustling Arrest

CARLSBAD (AP) — A calf riding in the backseat of a Honda Civic led to the arrest of three men for alleged cattle rustling in Luna County. The sheriff’s office arrested the men last Friday when a deputy pulled over a Honda Civic and saw a 220-pound calf sharing the backseat with one of the alleged thieves.

The Carlsbad Current Argus reports the men were arrested on suspicion of larceny of livestock, conspiracy, lack of a bill of sale and exporting livestock. The larceny and conspiracy charges are felonies.

The three were booked into the Luna County Detention Center.
