Two Charged for Selling Cattle They Did Not Own 11 Dec 17

(Learfield News Service/Becker County, MN) — The Becker County Sheriff’s Office says Two Park Rapids, Minnesota, men are facing charges after being accused of selling cattle they didn’t own. Prosecutors have charged 49-year-old Bret Ricardo Glatzmaier with two felony counts of rustling and cattle theft.

Thirty-one-year-old Christopher Charles Strehlow has been charged with one felony count of rustling and cattle theft.

Investigators say a cattle owner responded to an ad placed by the men for pasture land for rent.

The owner brought 16 head of cattle to the pasture on August 20th and returned November 4th and found only four head left.

Strehlow allegedly admitted that the cattle he sold were from the rented pasture. He said the check was made out to him, and he split the money with Glatzmaier.
