Tomorrow, Checotah Casino, 11:30 AM.
It seems there is a HUGE amount of thefts going on in the porum Landing, duchess creek area right now. Representatives from the sheriffs department said they know who it is but have no cause to do anything. Our uncles military and family heirlooms was stolen along with several guns. Our family is offering a $10,000 reward for the return of the items. This has to stop!!!! At least 6-10 houses to date that we are aware of.
