LAKELAND, Fla. — Polk County deputies arrested six men in two separate cases on suspicion of stealing cows from a Lakeland pasture, calling them “bovine bandits.”
In the first case, deputies arrested Jordan Ferguson, 19, Trevar Veltrop, 21, and Dalton Pelham, 22, in connection to the theft of cattle from a pasture in April and later, their sale at auction.
Deputies said the trio stole three black cows, one brown cow and four calves after cutting a hole in the perimeter fence.
Deputies worked a tip and said they found that Pelham had sold all eight cows at the Cattleman’s Livestock in April for $4,000.
When confronted, deputies said the trio confessed to stealing the cows, selling them and pocketing the cash.
In the second case, deputies arrested Bryce Pickle, 18, Leroy Hamilton, 18, and Dakota McClellan, 20, in the theft of three calves from that same pasture—one in April and two in June.
The trio duct-taped the last two calves’ legs and placed them in a pen without food and water, deputies said.
An acquaintance of the group called the police, causing the suspects to undo the duct tape and flee, deputies said.
Deputies said the calves are doing fine.

BARSTOW, Calif. — Former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown was recently arrested following what authorities say was a violent altercation at an apartment in California.
The 30-year-old “That’s So Raven” actor was reportedly engaged in a dispute with his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s mother when an officer from the Barstow Police Department arrived on the scene at around 8 a.m. Thursday.
The officer realized there were active arrest warrants on Brown and his girlfriend’s mother, so they were both arrested and booked into the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Barstow Jail, according to a police press release.
Brown’s bail was set at $25,000.

BAY LAKE, Fla. — What happens when you meet your favorite Disney character for the first time?
Check out what happened Friday night when Atlas, a service dog, saw Pluto for the very first time up close at Walt Disney World.
With his friend recording, Julian Gavino took his Golden Retriever to meet Pluto Friday night at Epcot.
Gavino told ABC News until this past week, Atlas only knew of Pluto as a giant stuffed doll, because he has one at home that "he loves so much."
But the two hit off when they met as real live dogs.
Gavino posted the video on Facebook and wrote "Atlas was more than excited to meet his best pal look alike."
