MARIETTA, Okla. -- A would-be jewel thief in Marietta didn't get far Wednesday night.

Authorities say Ryan Robbins, 21, tried to break into the Norton's Jewlery Store early Thursday morning. Robbins even brought along an ice chest, presumably to carry the loot away in. Robbins ended up leaving that, along with his shirt, behind at the scene of the crime.

"The subject had attempted to break in through the front door by throwing a large rock through it. He did not gain entry but when the alarm went off, he fled," Marietta Police Chief Linda Johnson said.

Officers caught up with Robbins shortly, and arrested him. He is in the Love County Jail.

    Two accused of rustling cattle By Doug Russell News Editor A former Krebs police officer and his father have been charged with stealing cattle. Philip Marlyn Smith, 26, and George W. Smith Jr., 50, pleaded innocent in Pittsburg County District Court Thursday afternoon to two counts of larceny of domestic animals. The two are alleged to have stolen cattle from a ranch on which the father was working in August 2004 and June 2005, according to court records. If convicted, the two men face three to 10 years in prison on each count. According to an affidavit filed in the case, a rancher in the Scipio/Tannehill area suffered a stroke about five years ago and his family hired George Smith to tend the ranch and take care of his cattle. In early 2005, the rancher had recovered enough that he was able to return to the ranch, at which point he noticed that some of the yearling calves on his land had a Circle S brand — not his — and the calves looked like his cattle.
