A Purcell man who allegedly stole and pawned a trailer posted a $5,000 bond following his arrest.
Raymond M. Elledge, 41, reportedly admitted to the theft and pawn when interviewed by a McClain County Sheriff’s detective on January 4, according to an affidavit.
Elledge is charged in McClain County District Court with receiving stolen farm equipment.
Jerry Pickard reported on October 1 that his 2014 Big Tex trailer was stolen.
Elledge reportedly pawned it the same day at Extra Cash Pawn in south Oklahoma City.
The detective confirmed it was the stolen trailer on November 4 and alerted Pickard where the trailer was.
Six days later, Pickard went to the pawn store to retrieve the trailer.
According to the affidavit, he had to pay $600 before the store would release the trailer.
