Sharon Nehring, also known as Sharon Jacoby, 57, of Freestone County, Texas, surrendered to authorities Tuesday and was charged with felony theft of livestock.
Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Jimmy Dickson and authorities searched for Nehring for several months after an investigation revealed Nehring had purchased thousands of dollars worth of lambs and goats with a worthless check from the Freestone County Fair in June of 2014.
Due to a TSCRA Operation Cow Thief award being offered and the many calls TSCRA received from citizens, Nehring surrendered to authorities and was arrested on a $5,000 bond on Tuesday.
“The response from concerned citizens was tremendous and eventually led to the suspect surrendering and posting bond,” said Dickson. “I’m pleased TSCRA Operation Cattle Thief was able to help in this investigation and I greatly appreciate Freestone County Detective Clayton Aldrich and Freestone County District Attorney Chris Martin for their assistance in the arrest of the suspect. This case will now move forward to the criminal justice system.”
