Ardmore Man Convicted of Knowingly Concealing Stolen Cattle

An Ardmore, Okla., man was convicted on Dec. 16, 2014 after knowingly concealing stolen property (cattle) in Jefferson County. Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Bart Perrier led the investigation.

Cody Wayne Blalock, 28, was convicted after he sold two steers, in the summer of 2014, to subjects who resided in Jefferson County. The steers in question were stolen from the Speake Ranch, located near Ardmore, Okla. Both of the steers were branded with the victim's state registered brand, which aided in the quick identification and recovery of the cattle. The stolen steers have been returned to the victim.

"This case highlights that branding livestock is an invaluable tool for law enforcement to quickly locate, identify and recover stolen livestock," said Perrier.

On Dec. 16, 2014 Blalock pled guilty to a five year suspended sentence along with a $500 fine and $1,000 in restitution. Blalock is also required to complete 100 hours of community service.

TSCRA would like to thank Lt. Derek Helmke of the Carter County Sheriff's Office for his work and assistance during this investigation.
