An Ingalls man charged in a modern-day cattle rustling scheme pleads guilty.

Thirty-seven-year-old James Unruh is the owner of the J.C. Cattle Company, a feed yard in Garden City. He has been accused of wire fraud and theft of livestock.

In his plea, Unruh admitted to operating a starter feed yard in Finney County. Beginning in 2006 and continuing through September 2007, he began to steal cattle entrusted to him.

He had the stolen cattle transported outside Kansas and sold without the permission of the owners.

Unruh could face a maximum of 20 years in prison.
