Jacob Thompson, 30, was arrested by TSCRA Special Rangers Hurley and Kent Dowell in Oklahoma then transferred to Sulphur Springs, Texas, by Hurley. He was charged with a first degree felony.
According to Hurley, in October 2013, Thompson attempted to purchase 400 head of cattle from the Sulphur Springs Livestock Auction with bad checks totaling more than $300,000.
