Where's the pork?

Authorities in western Iowa are looking for a thief with a very big payload - 120 market hogs.

The Palo Alto County Sheriff's Office says that someone swiped the swine from a hog confinement in Silver Lake Township sometime between May 29 and July 10.

The theft was reported this week.

Chief Deputy Todd Suhr says his agency is investigating but has "no hot leads right now." The missing hogs are valued at $19,000.

The owner of the confinement is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information in the case.
