Arrest made in ag equipment thefts
Special agents of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry's Investigative Services with the help of Logan and Canadian County sheriff departments arrested a man March 4 for the theft of trailers, an ATV and other agricultural implements.
Col. Mike Grimes, chief investigator for the agency, said the thefts were reported about two weeks ago from commercial deer producer Bob Moore of Logan County.
"Captain Jerry Flowers, working with Logan and Canadian County sheriff's departments, investigated the case and a suspect was identified," he said. "When Captain Flowers went to the residence of Damingo Rendon, he saw one of the trailers that had been reported stolen by Mr. Moore."
After further investigation about $155,000 in stolen property was recovered. Grimes said Damingo Rendon was arrested and is facing charges in both counties. Rendon is a convicted felon and could face up to 10 years on the charges.
Investigators with the National Insurance Crime Bureau also assisted in the case.
