Henryetta Man Arrested for Eight Counts of Larceny of Livestock

Henryetta Man Arrested for Eight Counts of Larceny of Livestock
A Henryetta, Okla. man surrendered himself to authorities on Wednesday at the Okmulgee County Jail for charges of larceny of livestock.

Kiley Wayne Johnson, 19, was arrested on felony warrants charging him with eight counts of larceny of livestock. The warrant was issued by the Okmulgee County district court after the investigation revealed that Johnson had stolen seventeen head of calves and thirteen head of cows from five different victims who reside near Henryetta in Okmulgee County.

According to Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Bart Perrier, who led the multi-county investigation, during the fall of 2014 Johnson started stealing cattle and selling them at local livestock markets. The investigation found that Johnson, with the help of others, began stealing livestock which were eventually sold at livestock markets in Oklahoma located in Okmulgee, Checotah, Bristow and Hugo.

These thefts resulted in the charges and arrest of Johnson in Okmulgee County. The investigation is continuing and has led to other theft cases in two additional counties, bringing the total number of victims to seven in three counties over a six month period.   

"Additional charges against Johnson and his accomplices are pending at this time and more charges and arrests are expected," said Perrier.

The bond on Johnson was set at $200,000.00 on the Okmulgee charges.

TSCRA would like to thank the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office and Detective Jeremy Wade with the Henryetta Police Department for their work and assistance during this investigation.
