DURANT, Okla. -- A Bryan County man is in jail for stealing expensive copper wire. Officers arrested Rockey Jim Oliver at about 3:30 Friday morning.

The call came in as a suspicious person at the 'Money Talks Trailer Park' on Main Street in Durant.

The officer noticed copper wire in the backseat of Oliver’s car.

He first said it belonged to his brother, but it matched the description of stolen wire stolen in Atoka County where he faces possession of stolen property (copper) charges.

    The "Money Talks Trailer Park"??? Now that's funny by gosh. I believe we can all sing with Cartman from Southpark - "In the ghettoooooo, and his momma cried" You don't recon a feller could purchase a dime bag of crack at this place do ya? Might even be able to trade some stolen copper wire too. He may have been looking for the 3:30 am discount.
