Miss Silver Buckle Thief Going to Prison for New Theft Convictions


One of the men convicted of destroying a horse statue  from Tangles Salon back in 2012 is going to prison on new theft charges. 25-year-old James Gunter May pled guilty to three charges today in 78th District Court.

An arrest affidavit alleges he hasn’t been paying fees for items he’s buying from rent-a-center. Jail records show he’s also violated his probation. He will now serve three years in prison for forgery, theft, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

May was previously convicted of stealing “Miss Silver Buckle” from Tangles Salon and cutting the statue into pieces in March 2012.

He received five years deferred adjudication for the charge of theft under $20 thousand dollars.
