Tipsters To Receive Reward Money In Cattle Killings

Posted: Updated:

The tipsters that provided information leading to arrests in the killings of five head of cattle in Rogers County will receive reward money.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton received a check from Special Ranger John Cummings and Bart Perrier from the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association today.

The reward money will go to those who provided the information that led investigators to arrest two Broken Arrow teens.

Traton Vanderpool and Jared Barless were arrested and booked on nine animal cruelty complaints last year. They are accused of using compound bows in the shootings, which left five cattle -- worth around 19-thousand dollars -- dead.

"The Rogers County Sheriff's Tipline did what it was intended to do and that was to provide people with another way of getting information to us that is comfortable to them," Sheriff Walton said.

Both Vanderpool and Barless pleaded guilty last month to the charges.
