Ocala, Florida - Marion County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Tampa man for dealing in stolen property. The stolen property? Nine cows and a bull.

Detectives say Andres Trujillo wrangled the cattle from a pasture in Charlotte County. The 34-year-old cut a fence and got the 10 head of cattle into a trailer.

He was arrested when deputies say he tried to sell the cattle at the Ocala Livestock Auction.

The nine cows and one bull are owned by Staci Murphy of Arcadia. They were all branded with "6-R" as well as markers on their ears.

When the cattle were discovered missing, Murphy called livestock markets around the state of Florida. Murphy received a call back from the Ocala Livestock Auction that her cattle were brought to them to be sold by Trujillo.

MCSO deputies arrived and arrested Trujillo.
