Two men are behind bars in Wichita County and now charged with theft of precious metals... after Iowa Park police receive a call about two men stealing oil equipment south of Electra.
22 year old Damaion Maurice Fleming, of Olney and 29- year old Dustin Ryan Deering, of Wichita Falls, have been charged with theft.
But, Deering has an additional charge of possession of marijuana.
Sheriff David Duke says an employee of the company on the lease saw the two men and called 911, then followed them along Highway 287 until officers arrived.
Iowa Park police pulled the two men over near the Johnson Road exit of 287.
Sheriff Duke says deputies searched the vehicle and found oil field equipment believed to have been stolen from several oil fields along Highway 287.
