Northeast Nebraska man sentenced to prison for stealing cattle that were sold in South Dakota


CENTER, Nebraska — A northeast Nebraska man has been sentenced to five to eight years in prison for stealing cattle from a feedlot.

Norfolk radio station KNEN reports (http://bit.ly/1HnU7FT ) Timothy Ketelsen was sentenced Tuesday in Knox County District Couty. He pleaded no contest in September to charges of tax evasion, theft and illegal sale of livestock.

Court documents say Ketelsen's former boss reported that 13 head of cattle had been stolen from the feedlot. 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.
