Cape Girardeau County deputies arrested a Perryville, Mo., man Monday on suspicion that he falsely represented himself when purchasing 30 head of cattle from Fruitland Livestock Sales Barn.

Clyde W. Satterfield, 31, is charged with stealing by deceit, a felony, for allegedly telling the livestock sales barn that he was purchasing the cattle for a man from Illinois. The man, who Satterfield allegedly called Jack Meyer, didn't exist, therefore the Fruitland sales barn never received payment for the livestock.

The cattle were valued at $3,000.

Satterfield has been released from the Cape Girardeau County Jail on a $15,000 bond.

He's expected to make his first court appearance today.
