Wyoming man charged with stealing Iowa cattle

MARTELLE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a 42-year-old man has been charged with stealing cattle in eastern Iowa.

Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver says in a news release that Barry Bieber, of rural Wyoming, is charged with felony theft.

Graver says the theft occurred over a three-day period from a farm about four miles east of Martelle and was reported July 7. The 18 animals were recovered from a sale barn near Cascade. Their value was estimated at nearly $30,500.

It’s unclear whether Bieber has an attorney. A phone listing for him couldn’t be found.
