William Lloyd Dulaney, Tolar, Texas, has been indicted on suspicion of cattle theft in Coleman County. The 48-year-old allegedly leased 13 roping steers from a resident in Santa Anna, Texas, in 2010. The steers were never returned to their rightful owner, Barry Shlachter reported for the Star-Telegram.
The cattle were dispersed among members of a Hood County cowboy church congregation after being used for recreational roping. The steers can no longer be traced, head of enforcement for the Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Association Larry Gray said. Dulaney worked as an oil field truck driver.
The value of the steers in 2010 is estimated at $600 to $700 a head, and today they would probably be worth twice as much, Gray said.
