A Hendersonville, Tenn. man was charged with 18 counts of theft after scamming multiple victims in Blanco, Texas and across the United States by selling electronic cattle ear tags and not delivering the product to the victims.
Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Mike Barr led the investigation. TSCRA Special Ranger Wayne Goodman and Hendersonville, Tenn. Sheriff’s Department Det. Sgt. Jim Vaughn assisted.
According to Barr, the suspect, Timothy Michael Evans, 50, made up a company called “Cattle Traxx” and used a website and social media to fraudulently sell electronic ear tags to a victim in Blanco, Texas. The victim said he never received the ear tags he purchased and Evans continuously made excuses for the delay in delivering the product.
