HAYFIELD, Minn. (WCCO) – A Minnesota man who stole hundreds of feeder pigs was sentenced to spend 10 years in prison.

Last year, 750 pigs disappeared from two farms in central Minnesota. Then 200 more pigs disappeared from producers in Mitchell County in northern Iowa.

Forty-four-year-old John Arndt, of Hayfield, Minn., received several charges, including ongoing criminal conduct and first-degree theft.

In addition to prison time, he must also pay $55,000 in restitution.

The case against another man accused of helping Arndt is still pending.
