RED CLOUD, Neb. (AP) - A south-central Nebraska man accused of cattle rustling has been given three years of probation.

Court records say 28-year-old Austin Petr, of rural Blue Hill, had pleaded no contest to misdemeanor theft in Clay County and to felony attempted theft in Webster County.

Authorities say Petr sold calves Jan. 13, 2017, at a Clay County sale barn that had been stolen earlier that day from a property in Webster County.
