PULASKI, TN (AP) - Police in southern Tennessee are searching for two men they say took thousands of dollars in cows and sold them in Kentucky.

Arrest warrants have been issued for 22-year-old Gerald Mimms and 36-year-old Brian Reeves.

Authorities told WKRN-TV in Nashville (http://bit.ly/1rrk7kX ) the pair went to a Pulaski stockyard on Oct. 7 and bought four cows for $5,700.

Police say the duo reportedly drove to Kentucky and sold the cows for profit.

Detectives say Mimms used his real I.D. and wrote a check on a frozen account.

Stockyard owner Billy Wallace says the bank didn't disclose that information until it was too late.

Giles County Detective Shane Hunter says Reeves have also stolen $60,000 from Kentucky stockyards, $10,000 from a Maury County stockyard and $5,700 from Giles County.
