A man from South Dakota is alleged to have illegally sold cattle and alfalfa hay during a series of crimes that spanned two and a half years.

According to court documents, Tyler Remily, 33, from Frankfort, was arrested on Nov. 7 after being charged with embezzlement of property received in trust, grand theft and disposal of personal property subject to security interest. All of these charges are felonies.

The embezzlement charge for Remily was the result of illegally selling 50 head of cattle belonging to Francis Heer of Doland on Nov. 4, 2015. Remily is alleged to have kept the money with the intent of defrauding Heer.

Two months later according to paperwork Remily took $15,000 from Heer resulting in the grand theft charge.

The disposal of personal property occurred when Remily allegedly sold alfalfa hay on March 28, 2017, that had been mortgaged by the Heartland State Bank.

Remily has a court date set for Dec. 17 and was released from jail on bond.
