Special Rangers with the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association have arrested a Bristow man for stealing 12 head of cattle from two Tulsa County ranchers, a news release says.

According to special ranger Bart Perrier, Jimmy Lee Manley, 51, used a stock trailer he stole from Wagoner County on July 19 to load and steal six cows and one steer calf from a ranch near Broken Arrow in Tulsa County.

Manley transported the seven head of cattle on the same date to the Fort Smith Livestock Auction near Fort Smith, Ark., where they sold for $9,729.36, Perrier said.

On Aug. 2, TSCRA says Manley stole one bull, two cows and two heifer calves from another Tulsa County ranch near Collinsville.

Manley also is accused of burglarizing the Collinsville victim’s barn and stealing assorted hand tools and other items. He also reportedly stole a 14-foot stock trailer, which investigators say he used to haul the five stolen cattle.

Manley also transported that group of cattle to the Fort Smith Livestock Auction where they were sold for $7,253.39, Perrier said.

The stolen stock trailer and some of the assorted stolen tools reportedly were recovered at Manley’s home on Oct. 13 by Perrier, special ranger John Cummings and investigator Daniel Brashear with the Creek County Sheriff’s Office.

Manley has been charged in Tulsa County District Court for the thefts and currently is being held in the Tulsa County jail in lieu of $120,000 bond.

Manley previously was arrested this year on a separate cattle theft charge in Creek County by special agents with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture. Perrier said there are other pending cattle theft and larceny charges in various other counties that he expects Manley will be charged with soon.

“This case provides a great example of TSCRA Special Rangers working closely with other local law enforcement officials to arrest another cattle thief,” Perrier said. “Ranchers should always remember that branding cattle, locking gates and being aware of what’s taking place on their operation is critically important. Taking these precautions can help to prevent cattle theft.”

TSCRA said Oklahoma Department of Agriculture special agents also assisted in the case.       

TSCRA rangers are stationed throughout Texas and Oklahoma, have in-depth knowledge of the cattle industry and are trained law enforcement. They are commissioned as Special Rangers by the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
