A Canistota man has been accused of taking more than $100,000 worth of cattle from a Mitchell livestock seller.

Tyler McGregor, 35, was arrested on Jan. 26 and charged with livestock fraud for allegedly purchasing 64 head of cattle with an invalid check.

According to court documents, McGregor purchased the cattle from Mitchell Livestock on April 6 with a $106,488.74 check from a First National Bank account. The check was deposited at American State Bank on April 11, but was allegedly returned four days later and not honored.

McGregor was indicted on Jan. 17. As of that date, Mitchell Livestock had not been paid, nor have the cattle been returned, court documents state.

Livestock fraud is a Class 4 felony punishable upon conviction by a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
