South Dakota Man Charged In Iowa Farm Theft
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man is charged with theft after an Iowa Dairy reported missing hay.
Jamie Shape of Bridgewater is accused of stealing hay that was bound for a northwest Iowa dairy. He was arrested after employees at Meadowvale Dairy near Rock Valley, Iowa, said they found discrepancies in semitrailer loads of hay that had been delivered by Shape and his drivers.
Authorities believe the alleged thefts have been going on for several months and involve more than $10,000 worth of hay. Shape declined comment to The Associated Press.
