Stolen Vehicle Recovery

By Sheriff Scott K. Lindsey

On November 13, 2019 Texas County Deputies were dispatched to Astoria Road for a stolen vehicle (2002 Chevrolet truck) and contents. On November 21, the Salem Police Department recovered an item stolen from the vehicle and took multiple suspects into custody. Texas County Deputies investigated and received further information. The stolen vehicle was located on Carter Lane. Additional items from the vehicle have been recovered and the investigation continues.      
Texas County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jason Macpherson charged Justin D. Dake, age 37, of Yukon with stealing a motor vehicle and stealing a firearm. Dake was held in the Texas County Jail pending $150,000 bond. Also charged was Justin B. Williams, age 40, of Houston. Williams is being held in the Dent County Jail on local charges.          
The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
