Bristow Man Arrested and Charged with Cattle Theft

Bristow Man Arrested and Charged with Cattle Theft

A Bristow, Okla. man was arrested Tuesday in Sand Springs, Okla. and charged by the Tulsa County Court with larceny of cattle and burglary in the second degree after stealing 12 head of cattle from two separate Tulsa County ranchers.   

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

According to Perrier, the suspect Jimmy Lee Manley, 51, of Bristow, Okla. used a stock trailer he stole from Wagoner County on July 19 to load and steal six cows and one steer calf from a Tulsa County rancher near Broken Arrow, Okla. The suspect transported the seven head of cattle on the same date to the Fort Smith Livestock Auction near Fort Smith, Ark. where they sold in the amount of $9,729.36.

On Aug. 2, Manley stole one bull, two cows, and two heifer calves from a different Tulsa County rancher located near Collinsville, Okla. The suspect also burglarized this victimís barn, stealing assorted hand tools and other items, along with the victimís 14 foot stock trailer that Manley used to haul the five stolen cattle. Manley also transported this group of cattle to the Fort Smith Livestock Auction where they were sold in the amount of $7,253.39. The victimís stock trailer and some of the assorted stolen tools were recovered by Perrier, Cummings and investigator Daniel Brashear with the Creek County Sheriffís Office at the suspectís residence in Bristow, Okla. on Oct. 13.

Manley has formally been charged for these thefts and is currently being held in the Tulsa County Jail on a combined bond of $120,000.

Manley was previously arrested this year on a separate cattle theft charge in Creek County, Okla. by Special Agents with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture. Perrier stated that there are other pending cattle theft and larceny charges in various other counties that he expects Manley will be charged with in the near future.

"This case provides a great example of TSCRA Special Rangers working closely with other local law enforcement officials to arrest another cattle thief," said Perrier. "Ranchers should always remember that branding cattle, locking gates and being aware of whatís taking place on their operation is critically important. Taking these precautions can help to prevent cattle theft."

TSCRA would like to thank Investigator Brashear and Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Special Agents Dustin Goforth, Paul Cornett and Patrick Blake for their assistance in this case.
