ENID, Okla. — Garfield County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 30-year-old man on a complaint of possession of stolen property after being followed from the scene of a theft in Grant County by a farmer.

Jerry Wayne Seward, who has an Enid address but was driving a vehicle tagged in North Dakota, was arrested by Deputy Laura Roberts Monday morning, Sheriff Jerry Niles said.

Niles said the sheriff’s office received calls from the farmer and Grant County Sheriff’s Office at about 9:30 a.m.

The farmer said he saw people leaving the property he farms in a silver Dodge Dakota about a mile south of Oklahoma 132 and U.S. 64 in Grant County. He saw them drive from the land with property in the back of the Dodge truck.

The Dodge drove south into Garfield County, turning onto Great Lakes Road, losing some of the property from the truck before turning onto Logan Road, where the truck lost a frame and motor for a motorcycle, Niles said.

The truck continued south, trying to avoid the farmer, but stopped at a home in the 5600 block of North Boomer. At that time, deputies and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers arrived in the area.

Seward was taken into custody on the property complaint, and he may face a pending charge out of Grant County, Niles said.
