Last updated on Monday, August 15, 2016

(FRANKLIN) - Police in central Indiana say they’re investigating after 20 cattle were reported stolen from a sale barn in Franklin.

A police report says Rickey L. Teverbaugh told the Johnson County Sheriff's Office that he securely loaded 20 calves into a holding pen at the Amity Sale Barn on Monday evening.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the cows, as well as the chain and padlock used to secure them, were gone Tuesday morning.

Teverbaugh, the owner of the barn, told police he had recently bought the calves from a sale in Kentucky and was planning to auction them Tuesday night.

Sheriff's Detective James Bryant says the calves are brown and white, and black and white. Each weighs about 130 pounds.
