Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Assist with Arrest in Cattle Theft Case

Wed, 28 Sep 2011 10:37:54 CDT

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Assist with Arrest in Cattle Theft Case Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger John Cummings on Friday assisted in the arrest of Billy Chris Barnett, 25, Haskell, Okla., on 18 counts of larceny of livestock. Barnett was charged with allegedly stealing 18 head of cattle valued at $25,000 from a rancher in Muskogee County.


The cattle were recovered and returned to their owner.


Cummings said that the areas in and around Muskogee, Wagoner and Okmulgee counties have experienced several cattle thefts over the past few weeks, and at least 60 head of cattle have been stolen.


"Thieves in this area use onsite corrals to pen cattle in area pastures," said Cummings. "They then come back later with a trailer to remove the cattle from the property. Anyone who senses suspicious activity on their property should call TSCRA."


The investigation is ongoing. Cummings said additional charges are being sought for stolen equipment that was recovered including a stock trailer, flat-bed utility trailer and Dodge dually truck.


"We've had initial success with this investigation thanks to the hard work and dedication of several investigators and agencies," said Cummings. "We anticipate additional charges and arrests to follow in the coming weeks."


TSCRA would like to thank TSCRA Special Ranger Bart Perrier; Rae Lea Spears and Faye Banks, investigators with the Muskogee County Sheriff's Office; Dustin Dorr, investigator with the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office; and special agent Kent Dowell with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture.
