A Muldrow man is facing a grand larceny charge after he allegedly stole 42 railroad ties belonging to Union Pacific Railroad.
Jesse Dabbs, 33, faces up to two years in the State Penitentiary and a fine of up to $1,000 on the felony count.
On April 19, Dabbs told police and Union Pacific investigators that he stole the railroad ties, which had been staged for a construction project, and sold them to someone wanting to use them as corner posts for a fence project.
Dabbs took police to each location where he had stolen railroad ties. At the final location, police recovered six of the ties. The remaining ones were sunk into the ground and 28 of them are still outstanding.
