STILLWATER, Okla. — Officers made an arrest Tuesday after two bulldozers disappeared from the Two Rivers Pipeline & Construction Co. job site.

Barry David McLain, 47, of Perkins is charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle or implement of husbandry.

At approximately 7:16 a.m., the Texas-based company reported to police that bulldozers had been found just south of the intersection of 104th and Brush Creek.

Two Rivers Security Officer John Cunningham said in an affidavit that the bulldozers were driven across the property to a pond.

Officers went to a mobile home at 10718 S. Brush Creek. The bulldozers were found approximately 250 yards west of Brush Creek.

McLain told police that he owned the land and drove the bulldozers there with a dozer key, according to an affidavit. He was arrested immediately.

Both bulldozers were recovered and released to the construction company.

McLain was arraigned Tuesday and posted a $5,000 bail. He is due to reappear in court at 1 p.m. Oct. 2.
