DELTA COUNTY, TX-- Two men are behind bars for allegedly stealing three dozen head of cattle in Delta and Fannin Counties.

John Green, of Klondike, and Jonathan Jones, of Cooper, were arrested by Delta County Deputies and a Special Ranger from the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association.

Delta County Sheriff Ricky Smith says, this has been a two month long investigation, with almost all the cattle returned to their proper owners.

Sheriff Smith says charges may be filed on 4 additional people they believe were involved in the thefts. He says they are still investigating to see if these thefts are connected to the case in Hopkins County.
