[April 03, 2012]  CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) -- New Mexico authorities have arrested three men found with a 220-pound calf in the back seat of their car.

The Carlsbad Current Argus reports that the men are accused of cattle rustling. They were jailed on charges of suspicion of larceny of livestock, conspiracy, lack of a bill of sale and exporting livestock.

Luna County sheriff's office says a deputy pulled over their Honda Civic on Friday and saw the animal sharing the back seat with one of the alleged thieves.

The three are being held at the Luna County Detention Center.
