ODAFF investigators apprehend cattle fraud suspect quickly


State agricultural investigators moved quickly in early May and apprehended a Grady County man charged with fraudulently purchasing cattle from a Chickasha livestock market.

Bobby Joe Carter was arrested just 36 hours after the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry Investigative Services Division was assigned to the case, said Col. Mike Grimes, director of the division. Jon Brown, owner of OK Cow Sales in Chickasha requested the assistance at the suggestion of the Grady County Sheriff's office.

"The cattle were purchased with a check written on a closed account and then immediately taken to a market in El Reno and sold," he said. "I assigned Cpt. Jerry Flowers to the case and he conducted an extensive investigation, identified Carter as the suspect, and presented the case to the district attorney's office which subsequently filed charges."

During his investigation Flowers learned the suspect was out of prison on parole for similar charges, Grimes said.

"Through the assistance of the suspect's Department of Corrections Parole Officer, Cpt. Flowers was able to quickly locate and arrest Mr. Carter," Grimes said. He is being held in the Grady County jail at this time."
