Prosecutors have charged a Hulbert woman who allegedly concealed stolen saddles.
Lisa Ann Adair, 45, is accused of acting with another person in July to conceal saddles that had been stolen from Casey Morris. Prosecutors allege Adair knew or had reason to believe the saddles had been stolen.
Cherokee County sheriff’s investigators said they began to look into the stolen saddles when a woman from Stilwell called and said Adair tried selling her two saddles for $300. The woman said she assumed the saddles were stolen because of the low price offered, even though she knew they were likely worth much more.
Investigators began tracking down the saddles and eventually ended up at Adair’s home. Adair allegedly admitted the saddles had been at her home but said someone later took them from her vehicle.
Morris later told investigators he received information that a Hulbert man purchased the saddles.
The man later met with Morris and said he’d purchased them from Adair for $300.
Knowingly concealing stolen property is punishable by no more than five years in state prison or no more than one year in the county jail, along with a fine of not more than $500.
A warrant was issued for Adair’s arrest Thursday.
