Dairy Worker in Washington Charged for Stealing 30-plus Cows

Victoriano Ortiz Arroyo, 45, is accused of receiving $30,000 during a three year period when he sold more than 30 cows, according to The Yakima Herald-Republic.

The cows belonged to J&K Dairy of Sunnyside, Wash., where Arroyo was employed. Part of his job according to court records was to deliver cull cows to a local auction market.

The dairy became aware of the scheme in Nov. 18 when they were alerted by the Toppenish Livestock Yard. Sale records indicate Arroyo started taking sales proceeds from the cows in 2014.

Arroyo was arrested on Dec. 11 and has since been released.
