Man steals calf from school program to pay billNovember 30, 2018
By The Associated Press
BUNKER HILL — Authorities say a man stole a 1,095-pound calf from an educational program that he volunteered with in northern Indiana and sold it to pay a bill.
The Kokomo Tribune reports 47-year-old Todd Burns checked on cattle on weekends for the Maconaquah School Corp.'s Maconaquah Cattle Co. program in Miami County. The newspaper says a teacher told investigators Burns called him Nov. 17 to report that cows had escaped a pen and Burns was rounding them up.
Three days later, the teacher noticed a feeder calf worth more than $800 was missing. Burns allegedly sold the calf. He was arrested Tuesday on a theft charge.
Online court records don't list a defense lawyer.
The educational program allows children to raise cattle that are eventually processed and served for school lunches.
