Southern Arkansas University says four of five horses stolen from the campus — they belong to members of the school's rodeo team — have been found in Oklahoma. The search continues for a 15-year-old sorrel gelding. Some stolen tack had been recovered earlier.

NEWS RELEASE

MAGNOLIA — Law enforcement officials have confirmed the recovery of four of the five horses stolen from Southern Arkansas University’s Mulerider Stables. A press conference has been scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at the Stables to discuss details.

The horses were located earlier tonight (Nov. 15) in a wooded area near Tom, Okla. No one was with the horses at the time of the discovery. The horses are owned by SAU students who are members of the University’s nationally competitive collegiate rodeo team.

Police are continuing to search for one horse, “Credit Card,” a 15-year-old sorrel gelding.

Deputies from the McCurtain County Oklahoma Sheriff’s Department recovered some of the saddles, blankets and other tack on Thursday, Nov. 10. A livestock trailer that was taken during the theft was recovered on Thursday, Nov. 3. The horses and other items were stolen during the overnight hours of Nov. 2.

Individuals with information regarding the theft or the location of “Credit Card” are urged to contact the SAU Police Department at (870) 235-4100 or Arkansas State Police Investigator Hays McWhirter at (870) 703-2065.
