(Stillwater, Okla.) — A 20-year-old Cushing man has been charged with stealing six cows in rural Payne County, court records show.

In a two-count charge filed last week, Leonard Hayden Hargrove was accused of stealing three cows on Feb. 1 and another three cows on Feb. 4 from the same location.

Hargrove has not yet appeared before a Payne County judge in the felony case investigated by the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, court records show.

If convicted of two counts of larceny of livestock, Hargrove could be imprisoned for six to 20 years and fined up to three times the value of the cattle.
