Local News

Both men convicted in the theft and destruction of a painted horse statue in 2012 have now had their probation revoked for arrests or violations, since those sentences.

29-year-old Calvin Wayne Rickman was charged last March with violating terms of his probation for theft.

78th District Judge Barney Fudge has now ordered his probation revoked and sentenced him to serve 11 months in jail.

The other person involved in the theft and destruction of the painted horse “Miss Silver Buckle” from in front of Tangles Salon has also been convicted of numerous crimes since that theft, and is still in prison.   

James Gunter May has theft, forgery, and other convictions, since the horse theft.

Also, at least one of the two women charged as being accessories in the theft has also since been arrested for burglary.

Police say when they went in to the apartment, the horse was in the process of being cut into pieces.
