Man accused of stealing at least 13 head of cattle from feedlot in northeast Nebraska


CENTER, Nebraska — A 44-year-old man has been accused of stealing cattle from a feedlot in northeast Nebraska.

Norfolk radio station KNEN reports (http://bit.ly/1SGMbRp ) that Timothy Ketelsen, of Bloomfield, is charged with five theft counts. Online records say Ketelsen remained in Knox County custody on Tuesday. His lawyer didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press, seeking comment on the allegations.

Court documents say Ketelsen's former boss reported that 13 head of cattle had been stolen from the feedlot earlier this month. Investigators traced the cattle to a livestock market in Yankton, South Dakota, which paid Ketelsen for them.

Investigators also say they found four other instances in which it appears Ketelsen stole cattle.

Knox County authorities say Ketelsen acknowledged possessing cattle stolen from the Bloomfield feedlot on two occasions.
