A Comanche County man has been arrested and accused of stealing trailers in Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas. Authorities arrested Russell Klemmer in Newcastle Friday.
7-News first reported back in July that investigators had identified Klemmer as a person of interest in those thefts. Authorities say he would scan ads on Craigslist to find people who wanted to buy a trailer.
Then Klemmer would find one, steal it and sell it. Tillman County Sheriff Bobby Whittington says he got a tip Thursday from a member of the Texas Cattleman's Association that Klemmer might be in Newcastle.
