Enid teen is arrested on locomotive in Kremlin

An 18-year-old Enid man was arrested Friday morning in Kremlin on complaints of trespassing upon a train and stealing two trucks.

Union Pacific Railroad officials notified Garfield County Sheriff's Office at 2:38 a.m. Friday of a trespasser on a locomotive parked on a side rail at Kremlin, Sheriff Jerry Niles said. Officials said the man went into the train and used the radio, stating he was lost.

Deputies responded to the scene and contacted Justus S. Cobbs, 18, of Enid, Niles said.

During an interview, Cobbs told deputies he had stolen two vehicles from WAKO Industries, 5600 N. U.S. 81. He got one of the vehicles stuck in a field at the business, and drove the other, an F-450 truck, through the gate and headed north, Niles said.

Cobbs said he left U.S. 81 east on Midway Road, where he became stuck in the mud, Niles said. Cobbs walked to the railroad tracks where he located the locomotive.

Cobbs was arrested on complaints of trespassing on railroad property, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and malicious injury to property, and was booked into the Garfield County Detention Facility.
