TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A former employee of a Twin Falls elk ranch has agreed to a plea deal on charges that he stole from ranch owners.

The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1WcMfgi ) that 31-year-old Brandon Eldredge was charged with stealing elk semen from the Early Morning Elk Ranch in 2011 and selling it to another ranch for $3,000.

Eldredge entered an Alford plea to felony grand theft on Tuesday, meaning he did not admit to committing the crime but conceded that he would likely be found guilty if the case went to trial.

According to the plea agreement, Eldredge will receive a suspended sentence of two to five years in prison and be placed under supervised probation for two years.

He has also agreed to pay back the Early Morning Elk Ranch.
