SHERMAN, Tex. -- Seven saddle owners can rest easy Friday night knowing the Grayson County Sheriff's Office has located their stolen saddles.
Officials say the saddles were stolen sometime between November 2007 and now. Authorities arrested 23-year-old Joshua Jones on a warrant out of Bowie County in January.
Since then, they say Jones has cooperated with them, giving them information leading to the stolen saddles. Officials say Jones was selling saddles stolen from Sherman and selling them at auction in Texarkana. They say some of these saddles were custom made, which helped them easily identify the property.
Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary says he was happy to have Special Rangers from the Texas Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association help with the case.
"Well it's pretty fast, and it's good work on the part of the Special Rangers. And of course we're glad, we work with them on a regular basis, and we're glad they were able to get involved since the saddles were from this area," Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary says.
Officials say Joshua Jones is charged with one count of burglary, but they expect more charges to be filed.
Jones is being held on $100,000 bond at the Grayson County Jail.
