charges in the LeFlore
District Court after he allegedly
stole then wrecked a
truck then fled the scene.

been formally charged with
larceny of an automobile and
leaving the scene of an accident

Ash St. in Spiro when he
spotted a black Chevy pickup
owned by Trudy McKinney
parked on Park Lane. Guinn

truck toward Arkoma through
farm land and in the process
had a flat tire after crossing a

another three miles when he
ran through a gate and then
into an embankment and
became stuck.

reportedly saw Guinn driving
the stolen truck, deputies
went to a residence where
Guinn was supposed to be
staying and located him hiding
in a closet. Once they

and told him why they were
there, Guinn reportedly told
deputies that he needed a ride
and when he saw the truck
parked with the keys in it he
took it. He became nervous

was following him and that is
