Woman Accused of Stealing Horse from owner in Natchitoches Parish

Baton Rouge, LA (October 20, 2020) – The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) Livestock Brand Commission arrested a Caldwell Parish woman accused of stealing a horse from its owner in Natchitoches Parish.

Thirty-seven year old Tasha D. Cubbit of 518 Hendrix Rd., Kelly, La., was arrested by Livestock Brand Commission officers and the Caldwell Parish Sheriff’s Office Monday, October 19, 2020 and charged with one count of theft of livestock.

According to investigators, the LDAF received a complaint from the owner regarding Cubbit’s purchase of a horse. Cubbit allegedly purchased a horse from the owner, received the horse and failed to pay. Cubbit allegedly then refused to return the horse as required by law.

Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M., said, “State law protects owners of livestock from persons not complying with proper payment. When a suspect does not return the livestock he or she does not pay for, it becomes a crime.”

The Livestock Brand Commission was assisted in this investigation by the Natchitoches and Caldwell Parish Sheriff’s Offices. At the time of booking, no bond had been set.

LDAF Brand Commission inspectors are commissioned officers with the authority to investigate livestock theft and farm-related crimes.

  1. As the accused woman in this matter. How can someone steal a horse that I never once spoke with so called owner. The so called owner made a seller’s agreement with a 15 yr old minor and never made one with me period.. And persued the 15 yr old on Facebook without hesitation. Mind you the horse in question was very malnurished, weak, bones pretruding and deep laserations that took 3 months to heal completely. Can’t pay for something if you threaten people with Police and demand that they person’s never contact them again.. Animal Cruelty is what She needs to of been put away for in the beginning.. God always prevails and you pay for what you do unto others trust me.. my day in court will blow everyone’s mind..
