Warrant filed for alleged dognapper

DUNCAN — A warrant was filed in Stephens County court Friday for an alleged dognapper who is wanted in connection of the theft with 25 dogs from a Duncan woman’s home.

According to the affidavit filed in Stephens County District Court, Ashley Renee Richardson, 29, of Ratliff City, is being sought for one felony count of Grand Larceny of Dogs for the alleged theft of 25 dogs from a female victim on or about Aug. 22.

The bond set for Richardson’s warrant is listed at $25,000.

The victim spoke with Stephens County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Moore on Sept. 14 and according to the affidavit, she told the deputy that she went to Chickasha to meet with someone about buying a potbelly pig.

The other party didn’t show up and upon returning home, the victim discovered her home on Duncan Lake Road had been broken into and her 25 dogs missing.

Nine Kemmer Mountain curs, four Airedale Terrier’s, five Dachshund’s, six Chihuahua’s and one Chihuahua-Dachshund mix were gone — an estimated lost at approximately $7,000.

The victim advised Deputy Moore she has seen the puppies stolen from her house listed on Craigslist in the Dallas area and provided photos to the deputy she had taken, to compare with the one posted online.

Deputy Moore was also advised by the victim that Richardson had a multi-colored tattoo with stars and other tattoos on her body, which was also observed in the online photos posted of the dogs.

The victim and suspect have previously met, with the victim purchasing pot-bellied pigs last year.

  • 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.
