Two Houston men were convicted of a 3rd degree felony of attempted cattle theft Dec. 8 at a Falls County 82nd District Court jury trial. They are being held at the Falls County Jail on two separate $10,000 bonds.
TSCRA Special Ranger Marvin Wills led the theft investigation.
Wills said the defendants, Jeremy D. Brown, 43, of Houston, and Jeremy D. Brown Jr., 22, of Houston, attempted to steal 18 head of cattle and a, FFA trailer from Marlin on March 28, 2015. A citizen caught the men in the act and they didn’t have time to get the cattle loaded. The Browns were arrested in April 2015 and remanded to the Falls County Jail.
The defendants were both convicted of attempting cattle theft out of the Falls County 82nd District Court with Judge Robert Stem, presiding. The defendants await sentencing in January 2017.
Wills would like to thank Judge Stem, Falls County District Attorney Jody Gilliam, Falls County District Attorney’s Office and Falls County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this case.
“I am pleased these men were convicted today,” said Wills. “I look forward to the upcoming sentencing and making sure these thieves pay for the poor choice they made.”
