The two military service branch medallions stolen from the Doughboy statue have been recovered.
Medallions with the US. Army and Coast Guard emblems were pried loose from the plaque honoring fallen servicemen just before Christmas.
They were recovered when Henryetta police arrested Johnny Pruitt a short time later just a couple of blocks from the scene of the crime.
Pruitt, 54, was taken into custody for public intoxication and, when he was being booked into the jail, he told officers he had two military memorabilia in his possession. The medallions were confiscated and booked in as evidence.
He was booked into the Okmulgee County jail on misdemeanor charges of malicious injury to property, petit larceny and public intoxication. He is also facing several other traffic-related charges stemming from a 2019 arrest.
Bill Goodner, who spearheaded the campaign to put the new plaque on the statue, said when the medallions are returned, they will be mounted back on the plaque.
