Wagoner County Authorities Increase Award in Porter Arson Investigation

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Wagoner County announced this week that an award for information leading to the arrest of an arson suspect in the Porter area has been increased.

Deputies with the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office are continuing their search for an unidentified suspect that started a fire at a residence on South 365th East Avenue in Porter. The incident took place in May.

Officials sent out an advisory Monday stating that the reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect was increased from $10,000 to $12,000. The WCSO is asking for anyone to come forward to provide information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

"Foul play is suspected as two dogs and one horse was found deceased at the residence and appeared to have been shot," a previous statement added.

Various fire departments responded to the area to help battle the blaze, including the Porter and Tallahassee Fire Departments. Investigators are continuing to question witnesses and residents for any further information.

"Well we do have some suspects in mind," Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert told KTUL. "I know they know I know, so they know what's coming next."
