Police investigate theft at Cameron Measurements

DUNCAN — Duncan police officers are investigating theft of steel stock and a 2006 Ford F-350 float bed pickup truck from Cameron Measurements.

Police are looking for three individuals who broke into the industrial business around 9 p.m. Sunday. The incident was reported before 8 a.m. Monday.

“Three individuals cut the gates to Cameron and stole several thousand dollars worth of steel stock from the loading area of the plant,” according to a press release from the Duncan Police Department. “The suspects used a 20 foot flatbed truck and a mid-sized SUV to haul the stolen bar stock from the plant.”

According to an incident report, the three individuals would face grand larceny because the value of the property taken exceeds $500. So far no arrests have been made and the theft is under investigation.

Detective John Byers is leading the investigation. To provide information on the theft or other crimes, Byers can be contacted at 580-251-7624 or

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
