ST. CLOUD, Minn.—Two teenage boys from central Minnesota are accused of stealing at least 17 calves to start their own dairy farm.

Authorities this week arrested a 19-year-old from Rothsay and a 16-year-old from Barnesville.

Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says deputies received a tip that led them to 17 calves and eventually the teens. The calves are believed to have been stolen from three counties: Douglas, Stearns and Todd.

Investigators say the teens told them they wanted to start their own dairy farm. They say the teens planned to keep the heifers and sell the bulls, splitting the profits.

The calves have been returned to their owners. The case is being forwarded to prosecutors for possible theft and burglary charges.
