A Henryetta man surrendered to authorities Wed. and was charged with seven felony counts of larceny of domestic animals.
tscra logoDevin Alex Longan, 19, and co-defendant, Kiley Johnson, are accused of stealing seven calves from an Okfuskee County rancher.
Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Bart Perrier led the investigation.
According to Perrier, Longan allegedly stole the seven head of calves from the victim and transported them to the Okmulgee Livestock Auction where they were sold. Longan and Johnson are accused of going to the Okmulgee stockyards the following day and retrieved the check for the sale of the calves, and the profits were divided.
Longan has formally been charged on this case and is currently being held in the Okfuskee County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He will return to court Sept. 1, 2015 at 1:30 p.m.
Johnson is currently being incarcerated on charges filed in Okfuskee County and is being held on a $200,000 bond on an unrelated case. Johnson also has similar charges against him in Okmulgee and Hughes counties.
"TSCRA would like to thank Detective Jeremy Wade with the Henryetta Police Department for his work and assistance during this investigation," said Perrier.  
“This case provides an excellent example of TSCRA Special Rangers working closely with local law enforcement to investigate cattle theft cases and seek justice for ranchers who unfortunately become victims,” he added.
