ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Two teenagers have been arrested after a tipster led investigators to 17 calves stolen from several central Minnesota farms over the past two weeks.

A caller told the Stearns County sheriff's office that he had seen extensive media coverage of the cattle thefts, and that the calves were in the Rothsay and Barnesville areas of western Minnesota.

Authorities arrested a 19-year-old and a 16-year-old. The 19-year-old was booked into the Wilkin County Jail, and the 16-year-old was released to his parents.

KSAX-TV of Alexandria reports the calves were all returned to their owners.
