MORNING UPDATE: 4 indicted in Eastern Livestock scandal

GLASGOW — Four men have been indicted in the Eastern Livestock scandal that rocked farmers across Kentucky and others across the nation when Eastern Livestock Company, LLC, was exposed last November for writing millions of dollars worth of bad checks.

Local farmers were hit especially hard on Nov. 2, 2010, when they sold approximately $900,000 worth of cattle at the Edmonton livestock market and received worthless checks from Eastern Livestock in return. Investigations began within days of the Edmonton market sale, but it was too late for local cattlemen.
