PRYOR, OK — A $250,000 warrant of arrest was served for Salina resident Leon Quinn for larceny of an automobile.  

Mayes County Sheriff's Investigator Jason Treat, Capt. Rod Howell, along with Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics officer Jim Ward issued the warrant Dec. 11 as a result of an investigation by Pryor Police Officer Chuck Ward.

This is not the first case Quinn has been associated with in Mayes County. In August, he was charged with an eight-count felony; possession of oxymorphone, a .22 caliber Arminius revolver and a .50 caliber muzzle loader pistol, drug paraphernalia and surveillance equipment all after former felony convictions.

At that time, he was also charged with knowingly concealing stolen property that included a backhoe, four-wheeler, a flatbed trailer, saddles and tack.

Multiple entities were involved as they have reason to believe Quinn is involved in a burglary and narcotics ring in Mayes, Delaware, Craig, Cherokee and Wagoner Counties.

“The four-wheeler and saddles were stolen from Robert Cooper. His 15-year-old won the saddles in a rodeo,” Treat said at that time.

In Mayes County, Quinn's prior felony charges include possession of a controlled drug, two counts of carrying a firearm after former felony conviction, several counts of knowingly concealing stolen property, knowingly owning/operating a chop shop, possession of a stolen vehicle, delivery of a controlled drug and uttering a forged instrument.

The case is currently filed as an outstanding warrant. Online court records show Quinn is currently wanted on 12 outstanding warrants.
