Texas man sentenced to six years for cattle theft


Texas man Andre McKenzie was sentenced to six years in prison earlier this month for charges of theft of cattle in three different counties.

Theft of livestock carries a third-degree felony in Texas but McKenzie’s charges were upped because he stole from the elderly.

According to a Special Ranger, McKenzie stole and sold 11 cows from a rancher he worked for in Fayette County and was in the process of selling 12 more roping steers that he had stolen from a separate property when he was arrested in December of last year.
