NATCHITOCHES PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Tasha D. Cubbit, 37, of Kelly, La. is behind bars facing accusations of horse theft.
The owner of the horse lives in Natchitoches Parish.
Cubbit is accused of not paying for a horse that was purchased from the owner.
LDAF says, “Cubbit allegedly then refused to return the horse as required by law.”
Cubbit is facing one count of theft of livestock, a violation of Louisiana Revised Statue 14.67.1, a felony. If convicted, Cubbit could be sentenced up to 10 years in prison at hard labor and fined up to $5,000.
Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M., said, “State law protects owners of livestock from persons not complying with proper payment. When a suspect does not return the livestock he or she does not pay for, it becomes a crime.”
The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and Caldwell Parish Sheriff’s Office helped out the Livestock Brand Commission on this case.
