Second hog heist near Sheldon, Iowa in a week


Two cases of stolen hogs near Sheldon, Iowa just days apart.

Authorities were already looking for suspects in the heist of 150 pigs from a confinement about three miles south of town.

And now, investigators now say more than 400 feeder pigs and hogs were taken from the Dekker family farm near Sheldon Saturday night.

Authorities believe the bandits broke into the back of the barn where the animals were kept and loaded them onto a semi-trailer in the middle of the night.

They're valued at more than $38,000.
