A tip to authorities of a possible attempt to steal a truck led to the arrest of a couple in Washita County.

During the investigation, authorities would also find stolen copper at the couple’s residence.

The incident occurred on October 9 when, according to a probable cause affidavit, the Washita County Sheriff’s Department was contacted by a woman in Rocky after she had heard that a couple who also lived in Rocky were planning on stealing her son’s pickup.

The deputy was able to make contact with the suspects, later identified to be 43-year-old Dakota Raymond Glenn and 35-year-old Naarah Jerushah Holgate, and determined that the two not only had tampered with the truck in question, but discovered that the couple had allegedly stolen copper welding leads from their neighbor.

The report stated that while being booked into the Washita County Jail, Holgate was found to be in possession of a ziplock bag that contained a white crystal like substance that would later field test positive to be methamphetamine.

Holgate was charged with entering with intent to steal copper, third degree burglary, petit larceny, and bringing contraband into a jail.

Glenn was charged with entering with intent to steal copper, third degree burglary, and petit larceny.

Both will appear in Washita County District Court on October 27.
