Friday, October 30, 2020, Atoka Police Officer Jedediah Griffith, was advised by the Atoka County Dispatch that two individuals, in a red 2007 Ford Mustang, were taking tires from H&H Tires, located at 162 East Fifth Street.
Officer Griffith arrived at H&H Tire to find a red Mustang parked near the semi-trailers that were used for storage.
The officer made contact with two individuals, identified as Bryar Morgan Sawyers, 26, and Kalie Beth Renteria, 29, both of Wilson. There were multiple tires in the back seat of the vehicle.
Sawyers stated the owner of the business gave him permission to take the tires. He could not tell Officer Griffith the name of the business owner.
Officer Griffith contacted the owner of the business, Tara Huddleston, and informed her of the what was happening at the tire shop.
Huddleston said she had not given permission to anyone to take tires from her place of business, and that she did not know Sawyers or Renteria.
The Officer asked Huddleston to come to the business to insure no other items were taken.
Sawyers and Renteria were both placed in handcuffs after it was confirmed the owner did not give them permission to take the tires.
Sawyers had placed four tires into his vehicle from the tire shop. The four Goodyear Wrangler 275/60/20 tires were recovered from the Mustang.
The tires were worth $800 in total. Huddleston asked that the vehicle be removed, and the two suspects be trespassed from the property.
The Mustang was towed from the scene. Both individuals were transported to the Atoka County Jail for booking.
Sawyers and Renteria are both charged with knowingly receiving or concealing stolen property (misdemeanor), and petit larceny (misdemeanor).
