An investigation started in Checotah led to a Muskogee County seizure of a cache of stolen property worth an estimated $100,000, according to the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office.

A family in Checotah got hit by burglars and, suspecting they knew who did it, visited the house of their suspects, on Old Taft Road. Finding some of their property there, the family notified Checotah Police, who enlisted the aid of Muskogee County Sheriff’s office.

Yesterday, the sheriff served search warrants on the property at 8605 Old Taft Road and found motorcycles, a zero-turn mower, tools, tool chests, two box trailers and more items.

Arrest warrants have been issued.
