The third and final suspect in a stolen truck and trailer investigation was arrested Dec. 13 after an investigation headed by Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger John Cummings. According to authorities, the suspects allegedly stole a pick-up truck and trailer from a rancher in Mayes County. The suspects then stripped the truck in Cherokee County and sold it for parts in Cherokee and Delaware counties.
Randi Jean Whorton, 29, of Oaks, Okla., was charged and arrested for knowingly concealing stolen property. She is currently in custody in Delaware County on a $2,500 bond.
Earlier in December, Tyler Lynn Johnson, 25, Tahlequah, Okla., was charged in Cherokee and Mayes counties for theft and knowingly concealing stolen property. He was released on a $2,500 bond. Zachary Shane Gann, 22, Tahlequah, Okla., was also charged in Delaware County with knowingly concealing stolen property. Gann was released on a $2,500 bond.
Authorities recovered some parts of the truck and the trailer, which was intact and returned to the owner. The case is now pending court proceedings.
“The successful outcome of this investigation was a joint effort between TSCRA and the various law enforcement agencies involved,” said Cummings.
