A Louisiana man was arrested Friday near Sallisaw, Okla., on one count of aggregated theft by check. Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Special Ranger Toney Hurley led the investigation.

Jacob Thompson, 30, was arrested by TSCRA Special Rangers Hurley and Kent Dowell in Oklahoma then transferred to Sulphur Springs, Texas, by Hurley. He was charged with a first degree felony.

According to Hurley, in October 2013, Thompson attempted to purchase 400 head of cattle from the Sulphur Springs Livestock Auction with bad checks totaling more than $300,000.

He is currently in the Hopkins County jail on bond of $200,000.

Hurley said he expects more charges to be filed.
