BANGOR, Mich. -

Authorities in southwestern Michigan are seeking a man they say traded two cows he didn't own for a four-wheeler and illegally sold another cow at auction.

The Van Buren County sheriff's department says they're trying to arrest the 26-year-old man from the Bangor area who may have moved to North Carolina for a job.

He's charged with larceny by conversion, but authorities aren't immediately releasing his name.

The person who reported the cows stolen says he made an agreement with the man to board them from May until November, but the man claimed the cows got loose.

Deputies investigated after an initial report of the missing cows in July and determined two cows had been traded and the other sold in Indiana.
