Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart on Wednesday related information found through an investigation into the alleged burglaries committed by Heather Lynn Spear, 28, of Gore and Timothy Davidson, 28, of Vian. As reported by The Mix 105.1 last week, the two were arrested Jan. 14 and booked into the Sequoyah County Detention Center in Sallisaw on burglary and other charges, and on holds from other towns and cities. The two suspects are still being held in the county jail. Lockhart said deputies were able to track down the suspects after they attempted to sell a stolen gun in Fort Gibson. Davidson was arrested at his home north of Vian, and Spears was arrested at another home, the owner of which was not involved, deputies said.
Lockhart said the investigation revealed that the two suspects were linked to several burglaries in Sequoyah County and other burglaries in Cherokee and Muskogee Counties. Lockhart said, "Mr. Davidson has been a suspect in other burglaries over the last year. Investigators are attempting to identify other suspects and to recover items that have been stolen." Lockhart asked that anyone with information contact the sheriff's department. Lockhart said, "We know associates of the two have been purchasing stolen items and these people are violating the law. We will do everything possible to put everyone involved with these two suspects in jail." Lockhart said at least six burglary victims have been identified, and some of those have been burglarized multiple times. Stolen items include four wheelers, trailers, riding lawnmowers, guns, Weedeaters, and jewelry. Most of the items stolen have been traced and found to have been taken to other counties where they were sold or traded Lockhart said.
