Second Suspect Arrested In Missouri for Theft of Baby Calf in Oklahoma

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 15:00:20 CST

Second Suspect Arrested In Missouri for Theft of Baby Calf in Oklahoma A second suspect, Robbie Don Ellis, 24, of Claremore, Okla., was arrested on a felony warrant in Nevada, MO on Dec. 26, 2015 after stealing a baby calf from a Rogers County, Okla. rancher.

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger John Cummings led the investigation and TSCRA Special Ranger Bart Perrier assisted.

According to Cummings, the investigation began on Oct. 21, 2015 when a baby calf was consigned at the Vinita, Okla. livestock auction. The employees at the livestock auction said they became suspicious when a malnourished new-born calf was unloaded from inside the cab of a pickup driven by Ellis and the other suspect, Jenny Lynn Davis, 36, of Claremore, Okla.

The livestock auction staff contacted Cummings and an investigation was initiated. According to Cummings, the investigation revealed that the calf was stolen from a ranch located in Rogers County, where the suspects were temporarily living. The victim stated that he knew the calf was recently born but was unaware it had been stolen from his property.

The case was presented to the Rogers County District Attorney’s Office and both Ellis and Davis were each charged with one count of larceny of a domestic animal on Dec. 2, 2015. Davis quickly surrendered to authorities and was released on bond. Ellis had remained at large until information surfaced that he was in the Nevada, Missouri area. On Jan. 8, 2016, Cummings received word that Ellis was located and arrested by the Nevada police department on Dec. 26, 2015. Ellis is jailed in the Vernon County, MO jail pending extradition back to Oklahoma.

TSCRA would like to thank the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office Investigators Sgt. Gavin Gatrell and Sgt. Kyle Baker and the Nevada, MO Police Department for their assistance in this investigation.
