Two men were seen recently stealing six cattle worth thousands of dollars from the northeast corner of 50th Street South and 120 Avenue South, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said this afternoon.
Sometime between Sept. 30 and Oct. 3, a witness saw a “heavy-duty” white truck pulling a black trailer inside the property, said Teri Barbera, sheriff’s spokeswoman. Those cattle were valued at a total of $18,700, the sheriff’s office said.
Detectives from the Agricultural Crimes Unit are investigating the theft as well as a second theft of four cattle that took place between Oct. 10 and 24 from the northeast corner of 70th Road N. in Loxahatchee. The sheriff’s office did not release a value for these cattle.
There is no description available of whoever stole the four cattle from Loxahatchee. But detectives have released ones of the two who allegedly stole the Wellington cattle.
Detectives are looking for a black male between the ages of 20 and 22. He is clean-shaven, of medium build, and weighs between 150 and 170 pounds. He was wearing jeans, no shirt, a dark-colored baseball cap and a large Rodeo-style belt buckle, Barbera said.
He was with a white male between the ages of 18 and 20 years. The white male is 5-foot-11 and skinny, with short light brown kinky hair and pimples on his face.
The vehicle is described as a Ford F-150 extended cab. It is black with peeling paint on the hood. The witness told detectives it has a Navy Seal license on the front and it was towing a trailer with doors that open out, Barbera said.
