    Default To Catch A Thief

    Just thought I'd copy this article from the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raiser's Assocn. newsletter on the recent arrest of two cattle thieves in Central Texas.

    If you have rural property and cattle in Texas or Oka. you should be a member of TSCRA.

    MOTHER AND SON ARRESTED ON TWO SEPARATE
    CHARGES OF CATTLE THEFT
    Fort Worth, Texas - A Marquez mother and son were arrested in Leon County on two separate charges of cattle theft. Brent Mast, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) special ranger, and Lt. Kevin Ellis, Leon County Sheriff's Department led the investigations.

    Rosario Carrizales, 53, was arrested Wednesday after allegedly stealing six head of cattle from a rancher in Leon County.

    The cattle were spotted at the East Texas Livestock Auction by an order buyer who recognized the brand as a local rancher's. The owner of the brand was notified and later identified the cattle as his own. Investigations revealed that Carrizales, a part-time employee of the victim, allegedly stole and attempted to sell the victim's cattle.

    The cattle were recovered and returned to the victim.

    "Because these cattle were branded, we were able to identify and recover them quickly," said Mast. "The best way to protect your cattle from theft is to brand your cattle and register that brand with the county and TSCRA."

    Further investigations revealed that Carrizales' son, Jose Guadalupe Carrizales, 26, allegedly stole one head from the victim in March. Carrizales turned himself in to authorities Friday.

    Both were released on bond of $3,500.

    If convicted, each could face up to ten years in prison and/or up to a $10,000 fine.

    Anyone with information regarding this or other cattle thefts should call TSCRA's Operation Cow Thief Hotline at 1-888-830-2333.

    TSCRA has 29 special rangers stationed strategically throughout Texas and Oklahoma who have in-depth knowledge of the cattle industry and are trained in all facets of law enforcement. All are commissioned as Special Rangers by the Texas Department of Public Safety and/or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

    The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association is a 133-year-old trade organization. As the largest and oldest livestock association in Texas, TSCRA represents more than 15,000 beef cattle producers, ranching families and businesses who manage approximately 4 million head of cattle on 51.5 million acres of range and pasture land, primarily in Texas and Oklahoma. TSCRA provides law enforcement and livestock inspection services, legislative and regulatory advocacy, industry news and information, insurance services and educational opportunities for its members and the industry.

    The TSCRA is a great organization and without them many cattle thefts and other crimes against property in rural areas would go unsolved. They have recovered many stolen tractors, trailers, horses and saddles as well as cattle.
