August 16, 2016 09:51 AM

A 53-year-old Lincoln, Neb. man accused of trying to sell stolen cattle has been given two years in prison.

Beatrice radio station KWBE reports that Cork Tyan was sentenced Friday. Tyan had taken a deal in which he pleaded guilty to theft and attempted theft. Prosecutors lowered one of the theft charges in exchange for Tyan's pleas.

Authorities say Tyan went to a Gage County sale barn in February and tried to sell some calves that later proved to have been stolen from a rancher in Hayes County. Authorities also say Tyan admitted stealing barbed wire from a Beatrice store.

Tyan has been living in Lincoln.
