CENTER, Neb. (AP) - A 44-year-old man is scheduled to be sentenced in November for stealing cattle from a feedlot in northeast Nebraska.

Norfolk radio station KNEN reports (https://bit.ly/1FDv1SD ) that Timothy Ketelsen, of Bloomfield, pleaded guilty earlier this month to charges of tax evasion, theft and illegal sale of livestock. Prosecutors dropped five other charges in return for Ketelsen’s pleas. His sentencing is set for Nov. 24.

Court documents say Ketelsen’s former boss reported that 13 head of cattle had been stolen from the feedlot. Investigators traced the cattle to a livestock market in Yankton, South Dakota, which paid Ketelsen for them.

Investigators also say they found four other instances in which it appears Ketelsen stole cattle.
