November 11, 2011

Law enforcement officials in Oklahoma have recovered some of the items stolen from Southern Arkansas University’s Mulerider Stables on Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Deputies from the McCurtain County Sheriff’s Department recovered some of the saddles, blankets and other tack yesterday evening. A livestock trailer that was taken during the theft was recovered on Thursday, Nov. 3.

None of the five horses have been located, but according to Southern Arkansas University Police Department Chief Eric Plummer, several law enforcement agencies are involved in the continued investigation.

The horses were owned by SAU students who are members of the University’s nationally competitive collegiate rodeo team. All five of the horses are American Quarter Horses: Grey, a 7-year-old gray mare; Badger, a 14-year-old black gelding; Lena, a 14-year-old buckskin mare; Credit Card, a 15-year-old sorrel gelding; and a 10-year-old black mare simply called, “Black Mare.”

Individuals with information regarding the theft are urged to contact the SAU Police Department at (870) 235-4100 or Arkansas State Police Investigator Hays McWhirter at (870) 703-2065.
