GOUVERNEUR ā€“ A Gouverneur woman who has repeatedly been in trouble with state police for not properly fencing in her cattle has found herself in county lockup, according to state police.

State Police arrested Jaclyn D. Tarus, 41, Welch Road, Gouverneur, Sunday for reckless endangerment of property, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration second.

The arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred on Oct. 11 in which Tarusā€™ cattle were outside her inadequately fenced property and were found grazing in a neighbor's newly seeded field causing damage to the field.

The cattle had been repeatedly outside the pasture due to the condition of the fence.

Tarus was arraigned in Town of Gouverneur Court and remanded to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility in lieu of $750 cash or $1,500 bond.
