SAN ANTONIO -- Two arrests have been made in a cattle theft that occurred on or about April 16. Cameron Hoagland, 19, was arrested May 10 for felony theft of livestock for his alleged role in a cattle theft incident in Bexar County. His alleged accomplice, Malcolm Brietzky, 19, of Adkins, turned himself in to the Bexar County Central Magistrate’s office; he also was charged with felony theft of livestock. Brietzky has since been released on a $10,000 bond.
After a three-week investigation in which Detective John Barrera worked with the cattle owner and employees with the Seguin Cattle Co., the two arrests were made, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office May 10.
Hoagland and Brietzky reportedly had sold at least six head of Hereford cattle -- three cows and three calves -- stolen from a property on Trainer Hale Road in Bexar County. The cattle were taken by Hoagland and one other unidentified person to Seguin Cattle Co. in the early morning hours to be sold.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said Hoagland was reportedly paid a little more than $4,000 for the cattle. Three cows were returned to their rightful owner, Barrera said. However, the calves were already sold at auction.
According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Hoagland was cooperating with investigators and more arrests in this case were expected.
The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association special rangers also assisted the sheriff’s office in this case, as well as in a case in Wilson County.
Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. confirmed May 8 that two cows and two calves were stolen in the Fairview area (western Wilson County) in late March.
