Search for Two Tennessee Cattle Thieves

October 24, 2014

Police in southern Tennessee are searching for two men they say took thousands of dollars in cows and sold them in Kentucky.

Arrest warrants have been issued for 22-year-old Gerald Mimms and 36-year-old Brian Reeves.

Authorities told WKRN-TV in Nashville the pair went to a Pulaski stockyard on Oct. 7 and bought four cows for $5,700.

Police say the duo reportedly drove to Kentucky and sold the cows for profit.

Detectives say Mimms used his real I.D. and wrote a check on a frozen account.

Stockyard owner Billy Wallace says the bank didn’t disclose that information until it was too late.

Giles County Detective Shane Hunter says Reeves have also stolen $60,000 from Kentucky stockyards, $10,000 from a Maury County stockyard and $5,700 from Giles County.
