A East Texas A man accused of stealing nearly 200 head of cattle is behind bars after a ‘long investigation’, according to the Texas and Southwest Cattlemen’s Association.

A February 1st press release says Charles Allen Robinson Jr.. was arrested by law enforcement on January 27.

Officials said they showed up at his home near Kilgore with a warrant, but he “wasn’t easy” in custody.

It took two Texas and Southwest Cattlemen’s Association special rangers – with Public Safety Department soldiers and deputies from the Rusk County Sheriff’s Department — to take Robinson into custody, the statement said.

According to officials, the crimes were committed in September and October 2021.

Robinson faces multiple felony charges, including three counts of cattle rustling, which officials say are linked to the theft of 157 cows, 26 heifers and 13 head of cattle in Shelby and Upshur County.

Additionally, he faces a charge of issuing bad check, evading arrest, resisting arrest, forfeiting bail and insurance fraud, according to the statement.

Robinson’s link was preset to $267,000. If convicted, cattle rustling “carries a penalty ranging from 2 to 10 years in state prison and/or $10,000 fine,” the officials said.

Ranger Special Larry Hand said it reminded livestock companies to keep good accounting records “and never accept partial payment”.

Kilgore is about 120 miles east of dallas.
