A Nebraska man is facing federal prisontime on cattle rustling charges in Missouri.
The U-S Attorney for Missouri’s Western District says 47-year-old Allen Foos pleaded guilty to transporting stolen livestock across state lines.
Foos, from the south-central Nebraska town of Smithfield, admitted using an alias to order cattle from the livestock center in Callaway, Missouri.
In some cases, he got the cattle and sold them without paying the sale barn. He’s also accused of paying the sale barn by using the proceeds from later cattle deals.
In all, the amount of loss in the cattle scheme exceeded $200,000.
When he’s sentenced, Foos will face up to five years in prison, a quarter-million dollar fine and restitution.
