A case of modern-day cattle rustling last week has led to the arrest of Gary James Hill, 22, of Sweetwater, following an attempt to sell the purloined cows at a Georgia livestock auction.

Hill has been implicated in several such thefts in numerous East Tennessee counties.

The theft in McMinn County occurred in the early morning hours of Nov. 8, when Kevia Elliot reported four of her cattle missing from her farm on County Road 422.

Elliot then began checking any possible cattle sales in the area and later that day was able to locate one in Calhoun, Ga.
