Truck sold as scrap; man jailed

TAHLEQUAH — County sheriff’s deputies jailed a local man this week after a stolen truck turned up at a scrap yard.

Robin James Vann, 35, of Tahlequah, was booked into jail for false declaration of ownership, knowingly concealing stolen property, theft of a motor vehicle, and selling stolen property.

Deputy Raymond Hendricks spoke this week with Joseph Pritchett, whose 1998 Dodge had been stolen from the Moodys area

. Information later surfaced that Pritchett’s truck had been sold to a local scrap yard. Hendricks went to the business and was able to see the receipt, which had been signed by Vann.

The deputy then went to see Vann, who allegedly admitted he sold the truck at the scrap yard. Vann told Hendricks he was cleaning up a house and had been told everything was to go.
