Truck and Copper Theft Suspect Arrested in Claremore
Authorities have arrested a Chelsea man who they believe is responsible for the May theft of a pickup truck and 3,000 pounds of stranded copper stolen from a ranch near Chelsea, Okla.


Matthew James Fuller, 26, was apprehended Tuesday by the Rogers County Sheriff's Office and charged with burglary II, grand larceny and malicious destruction of private property. He was released on a $5,000 bond.


Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Special Ranger John Cummings said that the suspect allegedly broke into the victim's barn, loaded the pickup with three 750-foot coils of large diameter copper cable and drove off. The wire was worth approximately $7,000.


Authorities recovered the pickup from Chelsea Lake June 3, and the copper wire was recovered June 12 in brush on a property in Rogers County. TSCRA had offered a $500 reward through the association's Operation Cow Thief hotline for any information leading to the arrest of a suspect.


"This was truly a team effort," said Cummings. "Everyone worked together to locate the stolen property and arrest a suspect."
