SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Law enforcement officials say a southwest Missouri man charged in the theft of more than $100,000 worth of cattle and equipment might be part of a larger rustling ring.

DNA found on a paper towel near the scene of a cattle theft in May 2012 led to the arrest last week of 67-year-old Howard Perryman of Monett. Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott says Perryman was a cattle rustler when Arnott started as a deputy sheriff in 1988 and still is.

The Springfield News-Leader reports Perryman has more than 30 felony convictions. He was charged last week with two counts of felony stealing and one count of felony tampering.

He was being held in the Greene County Jail on $1 million bond. He didn't yet have an attorney Tuesday.
