Over the last two months Delta County has experienced several burglaries. In conjunction with a local citizen, Lake Country Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,500.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of these suspects. Items stolen include weapons (rifles and a shotgun), jewelry, and electronics.
Lake Country Crime Stoppers has now increased the reward to more than $10,000 for tips that lead to the arrest or indictment of those responsible for theft of more than 60 head of cattle from the North Hopkins-southern Delta County area since June of 2012, according to Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Special Ranger Toney Hurley.
The losses have been significant to the cattle owners, upwards of $1,000 per 500-pound calf. The stolen cattle have been a mix of calves, cows, yearlings and other bovine.
