KSAX reports three more calves were stolen in a string of thefts from Stearns County dairy farms.

Jim Scherer noticed three empty stalls while feeding calves on dairy farm near Freeport, Minnesota Sunday morning.

"I walked all over the yard for about a hour and a half looking for them, and we couldn't see 'em or track 'em anywhere, so we figured they were probably taken," Scherer said.

Sunday’s theft brings the total to nine stolen calves. The thefts are suspicious because the calves are worth about $150 each and are costly to feed. Stearns County Chief Deputy Bruce Bechtold has identified similarities between the four thefts.

"It appeared that a person or persons had walked from these vehicles, or vehicle, up to the farm site basically, maybe carried the calves and put them in a vehicle that was parked along the road," Bechtold said.

Bechtold is asking area farmers to be aware of suspicious behavior in the area and to monitor their property. There currently aren’t any suspects, but an investigator has been assigned to the case.
