BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - A 53-year-old man is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 3 in Gage County for stealing cattle.

Beatrice radio station KWBE reports (https://bit.ly/1TSR4eo ) that Cork Tyan has taken a deal in which he pleaded guilty to theft and attempted theft. Prosecutors lowered one of the theft charges in exchange for Tyan’s pleas Wednesday.

Authorities say Tyan went to a Gage County sale barn and tried to sell some calves that later proved to have been stolen from a rancher in Hayes County. Authorities also say Tyan admitted stealing barbed wire from a Beatrice store.

Tyan has been living in Lincoln.
