FREDERICKSBURG -- Five suspects have been arrested in the alleged theft of 6,000 lambs worth an estimated $1 million from a feedlot in Gillespie County. According to a Sept. 7 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) press release, the final suspect was arrested Aug. 22.

TSCRA Special Ranger Max Hartmann and Texas Rangers Wayne Matthews and Jess Ramos arrested Jose Martinez Hernandez of Mason, Angel Gonzalez-Cortez of Round Mountain, and Emilio Rodriguez Lopez, Francisco Rodriguez Lopez, and Cipriano Rodriguez Lopez, all of Marble Falls, on first-degree felony theft charges.

The suspects are currently being held in the Gillespie County jail on bonds ranging from $200,000 to $750,000.

“This is an ongoing investigation,” Hartmann said. “We were able to locate and arrest these five suspects thanks to the multi-agency efforts of the TSCRA, the Texas Rangers, the Gillespie, Mason, and Burnet County sheriff’s departments, and the Fredericksburg Police Department.”

TSCRA has 30 Special Rangers stationed strategically throughout Texas and Oklahoma who have in-depth knowledge of the cattle industry and are trained in all facets of law enforcement. All are commissioned as Special Rangers by the Texas Department of Public Safety and/or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
