Cattle rustler gets jail time
Last week Sanilac County Circuit Court Judge Donald Teeple sentenced Steven Galloway, 25, to 10 months in jail, with credit for 62 days already served.
In December, Galloway pled guilty to an amended count of attempted larceny $1,000-$20,000.
Charges of larceny in a building, larceny of livestock and habitual offender second conviction were dismissed at his sentencing.
Galloway was arrested on Nov. 6, when he was caught stealing cattle on the Sutton farm in the 4600 block of Cade Road in Flynn Township by Matthew Sutton.
According to the Sanilac County Sheriff Department, Sutton spotted Galloway loading five feeder calves into the back of a trailer. Sutton called Central Dispatch at around 7:30 p.m. to report that he had caught the thief.
Earlier in the day, Sutton had filed a police report stating that four calves were missing from the group of 10 that he had purchased the previous day at the Cass City Stockyards.
Sutton told Deputy Christopher Kravitsky that the cattle were worth $1,100 each.
Kravitsky also followed up on a call from a farmer in the Argyle area who reported he had bought the stolen Holsteins.
