A Lampasas man turned himself in to authorities Aug. 21 on cattle theft charges, after he allegedly stole a total of 100 calves from his employer. Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Special Rangers Marvin Wills and Max Hartmann led the investigation, according to an Aug. 21 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association press release.

Glen W. Russworm, 61, sold small lots of his employer’s cattle in his name at the Lampasas cattle auction over a span of 10 years. The total value of the stolen calves was $55,000. Russworm faces one charge of felony livestock theft and one charge of misapplication of fiduciary property.

According to Wills, Russworm left a paper trail leading authorities to charge him with the thefts. He had been an employee of the victim for more than 20 years.

Wills also said the stolen calves were not marked or branded.

“It’s important for ranchers to pay attention to their employees, no matter how long they’ve worked for them,” Wills said. “It’s also important to brand and mark all of your cattle.”

Russworm is in the Lampasas County jail on bond of $20,000. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine per charge.
