COPY-Indictment naming 6 unsealed in Oklahoma court


BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) - Six men have been named in a 15-count indictment that alleges racketeering, conspiracy and theft-related charges.

Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury indictment unsealed in Washington County District Court on Friday names 72-year-old Philip Hawk; 65-year-old Coy Short; 55-year-old Joseph Fairchild; 48-year-old Stevie Starks; 64-year-old George Baker; and 39-year-old Kory Pierson.

The men are accused of conspiring to steal tractors, all-terrain vehicles, horse trailers and stock trailers in at least eight eastern Oklahoma counties.

Spokeswoman Karee Pyeatt (CAIR'-ee PYE'-et) said none of the six entered a plea during a hearing in Bartlesville.

Hawk and Fairchild didn't appear with attorneys. Lawyers for Baker, Pierson and Starks couldn't be reached for comment.
