It is a case of modern day cattle rustling.
Over the past week, 14 black and white bull calves have been stolen from a farm near LeRoy.
The sheriff’s office is investigating.
Deputies say some farm equipment has also been stolen.
Only two calves have been recovered.
Deputies have a description of two suspected rustlers:
They are described as a large, white man with either a bald head or very short hair. The second suspect is described as a large white woman.
The suspects fled the scene of one of the thefts in a dark colored mini van.
Deputies say the equipment the two of suspects are taking leads them to believe the pair may be trying to raise the calves and not take them to auction.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
