FOREST MAN, Iowa – A Texas man is pleading guilty to rustling some North Iowa swine.
Robert Morales, 20 of San Benito, TX, entered a guilty plea Tuesday to one count of 1st degree theft. He was charged with stealing around 150 pigs from Christensen Farms in November 2017.
About 50 pigs were found in a snowmobile trailer with a flat tire in Thompson. The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office says some trail cam footage around Lake Mills helped law enforcement trace the vehicle to Morales.
No sentencing date has been set.
