Oklahoma Man Arrested on Horse Theft Charges

An Oklahoma man was arrested Wednesday, Sept. 10 and charged with theft of livestock after turning himself in to authorities in Wheeler County, Texas. Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Ben Eggleston led the investigation.


According to Eggleston, the suspect, Rusty Shane Munsell, 43, of Woodward, Okla., purchased four horses with a check from a closed account. Three of the four horses were recovered by Eggleston and returned to the rightful owners. Munsell is being held in custody on a $50,000 bond in Wheeler County.


Eggleston said Munsell is also out on bond from a case out of Hemphill County, Texas that was investigated earlier this year. According to Eggleston, Munsell had purchased 10 showpigs on a closed account and sold the pigs to kids for their livestock shows.


TSCRA would like to thank Special Ranger Eggleston, Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Special Agent Paul Cornett, Wheeler County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Ronnie Moore and Wheeler County Sheriff's Office Deputy John Hankins for their work on these cases.


"This is a good example of local law enforcement and TSCRA working hand-in-hand to protect ranchers in Texas and Oklahoma," said Eggleston.
