A Tulsa woman and a Henryetta man were charged Monday in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with second-degree burglary and grand larceny. Jacinda D. Oakley, 38, and Norman Terry Loague, 36, are accused of stealing kitchen appliances on Aug. 2 from a home near Gore, then offering them for sale on Aug. 3 on Craigslist on the Internet. According to the investigator's report, the items taken were all GE stainless steel and includes a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a microwave and an electric range.
The owner, Kari Vanwyk, reported to Sequoyah County Sheriff's deputies that she had found the items listed on Craiglist. The investigation revealed the serial numbers of the items listed for sale, at a Morris address, matched those that were stolen. Working undercover as prospective buyers of the appliances, the investigators went to the address given them by Oakley, and after inspecting the items, arrested Oakley and Loague. They were taken into custody by the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office, and will be charged with knowingly concealing stolen property in that county, according to the report. The Sequoyah County investigators took the appliances back to Vanwyk. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
