A Lubbock man was Arrested on two Separate Theft Charges
A Lubbock man was arrested after being accused of stealing an expensive amount of livestock. KAMC news reported that Texas Rangers made an arrest, on November 23rd, on charges of theft but the only kind of theft that doesn't make a lot of sense during inflation. 37-year-old Gilbert Luna was charged with two misdemeanors, Driving While License Invalid and Failure to Control Speed, and two third degree felonies, Theft Between $30,000 to $150,000 and Theft of at Least 10 sheep/swine/goat under $150,000.
Luna reportedly stole the cattle on September 19th after giving their owner a check to pay for the livestock. The owner of the cattle eventually contacted police after discovering that the check they were given by Luna was in fact a hot check. There is currently no update as to why Luna wanted to purchase the cattle while prices for livestock are going down and their food prices are increasing due to inflation. Luna was arrested and is currently, as per the publishing of this article, being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center in lieu of a total bond of $250,000.
