A man accused of stealing and selling tons of hay from the dairy farm he worked at in Pinal County and the man he was selling it to, are in a bale of trouble.

Hector Pelayo, 33, and Alejandro Noriega-Ramirez, 34, were arrested by Pinal County Sheriff's deputies on suspicion of theft on Friday, minutes after deputies responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle driven by Pelayo as he was traveling south of Highway 287 and transporting a trailer full of hay.

When deputies stopped Pelayo, he told them he had just purchased the hay from a nearby dairy farm, but officers already had information that the hay was stolen, and Pelayo admitted that it was and he had paid a man called "Wedo" $200 for it.

When deputies arrived at the dairy farm in the 7000 block of East Palmer Road near Florence, they located Noriega-Ramirez, who worked the night shift and the owner of the dairy who told deputies he pays $250 a ton for the hay and it is used only as feed for dairy cows and is not for sale.
