CLAY COUNTY, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

News Channel 6 learned Friday three people have been indicted in a cattle theft case from 2017.

Brandt Beasley, 38, Shannon Boles, 51, and Ayden Milam, 20, were each named in the indictment from January 16, 2018.

Back in August 2017, a rancher in Clay County called Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger John Bradshaw to report several of his cattle were missing. It was not known originally if the cattle had been stolen or got out.

During the investigation, it was found that a lock had been tampered with, suggesting that the cattle had indeed been stolen, according to the press release.

Shortly afterward, an individual who had spoken with Milam contacted investigators. The individual said that during their conversation, Milam allegedly confessed to stealing the cattle along with Beasley.

After further investigation, it was confirmed the cattle were sold at the Wichita Livestock Auction Barn and Boles was also identified as playing a role.

Arrest warrants were issued for the trio. Beasley was arrested by Archer County Sheriff's Deputies. Boles was arrested by Burkburnett Police and Milam by Clay County Sheriff's Deputies.

Boles and Milam were booked and released on a $50,000 bond. Beasley remains in the Clay County Jail. They face charges of Theft of Livestock. If convicted they could be sentenced to two to ten years in prison and possible fines and restitution.
