HOUSTON COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Houston County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 39-year-old Trinity man Wednesday in connection to allegations that he stole 33 head of cattle from a property on County Road 4140.

Otis Lee English is still being held in the Houston County Jail on a second-degree felony theft of livestock from elderly charge. His bail amount has been set at $20,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, an HCSO investigator took a report from a 77-year-old Trinity woman who said that someone had stolen several head of cattle from her. Then the investigator found out through East Texas Livestock and interviewing numerous witnesses and suspects that about 33 head of cattle were stolen from the victim’s property on CR 4140 in Houston County.

The investigation also revealed that English and a woman stole the cattle and sold them at the East TX Livestock Sale Barn in Crockett for about $21,907.

English and the woman both allegedly admitted to English loading up the livestock and selling it at the sale barn. The woman allegedly received the checks made out to her on each of the three trips to the East Texas Livestock Sale Barn.
