Public Help Sought in Myton Theft Case

The Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in a case of theft in Myton. The theft was reported last week when Myton resident Odis Fillingim reported items stolen from his tack shed, including two custom saddles. “The two Lee Meacham’s handmade saddles taken are rare and identifiable with the rough side of the leather on the outside and embedded serial numbers on each. The horn on one saddle bares the brand of a rocking chair and the other has a cowboy saying on it.” Other missing horse gear include braided nose and head pieces, bridles, saddle blankets and chaps, among other items. Duchesne County Detectives are asking that any tips or information be directed to the Sheriff’s Office, Central Dispatch, or by calling the anonymous tip line at 738-0196.
