An Alva man has been charged with concealing stolen property. William Michael Crouch, 49, of Alva, has been charged with knowingly concealing stolen property, a felony. He is accused of concealing a 16-foot by 6-foot flatbed trailer with sway bar hooks attached to the tongue that had been stolen from Glenn Williard Jones in Roger Mills County.

This crime is punishable by imprisonment in the state penitentiary not to exceed five years or in the county jail not to exceed one year, or by a fine not to exceed $500, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

On March 13 a search warrant was executed on the property occupied by William Michael Crouh. Numerous photographs of property were taken and numerous pieces of stolen property were recovered.

On April 6, 2018, Roger Mills County Deputy Mark Whittington contacted the Woods County Sheriff’s Office in reference to recent thefts in his jurisdiction where Crouch and his girlfriend were suspects. He said a 16-foot by 6-foot flatbed trailer with sway bar hooks attached to the tongue was stolen during the thefts.

Woods County Undersheriff Keith Dale reviewed the crime scene photographs and found a trailer matching that description. He sent a picture of the trailer to Whittington. Later Whittington contacted Dale and said the trailer was positively identified as stolen from his county.

On April 6, a Woods County search warrant was executed on the Crouch property near the intersection of Jefferson Road and County Road 380. The stolen trailer from Roger Mills County was located, seized and removed.

On April 10, Whittington came to the Woods County Sheriff’s Office where he again positively identified the trailer as stolen from Roger Mills County. The trailer was released to him to be returned to the rightful owner.
