GRAHAM, N.C. -- Nearly 200 beef cows were stolen from a farm in Alamance County, according to the State Bureau of Investigation.

The black Angus cattle were stolen from K-Farms on Crawford Road in Graham.

An SBI agent said the 114 cows and 75 calves are worth $371,000.

A former employee is the primary suspect in the case, but no charges have been filed so far.

A witness told officials he saw a man moving several cows from the field.

The last full count of these cows was in January. The farmer reported the cows missing in late April.

This suspect is also accused of replacing as many as 40 cows of a lower grade on the farm in the hopes that nobody would notice the missing cows.

The farmer is offering a $10,000 reward  for information leading to the recovery of the cattle and the arrest of the person who stole them.
