Timothy William Flad Sentenced For Cattle Fraud, But Mounties Still Looking For The Cows

Beef Cattle Calf, Ontario, Canada
EDMONTON - A cattle thief has had his day in court, been fined and given probation.

But the bovines have yet to be found.

Mounties say they need the public's help to find the more than 600 head of cattle.

Timothy William Flad, who is 47, was convicted in September of selling cattle that were financed without notifying the lender that he had disposed of the assets.

Flad, of Brownsville, Alta., was sentenced to one year probation and 100 hours of community service.

He was also ordered to pay back $12,000 to the lender for the 40 head he sold illegally.

RCMP say there are 600 cattle still unaccounted for by Flad.
