A Washington man is in some trouble. Police say he stole a van. In that van? $10,000 worth of frozen bull semen.

The Bellingham Herald reports that the 39-year-old Everson man was booked into Whatcom County Jail on Saturday after police pulled him over in a van belonging to West Select Sires, a cattle-breeding company.

Police Chief Daniel MacPhee says the van was reported stolen earlier in the day.

The man in the van faces a number of charges including possession of stolen property and resisting arrest.
