MADILL, Okla. -- Marshall County Sheriff Danny Cryer said 34-year old Thomas McQueary was taken into custody after allegedly stealing as much as $30,000 worth of property.

Cryer said household items were taken from the residence on Simpson Road in Madill, and deputies are still on the lookout for a number of weapons.

"This is still an ongoing, active investigation," the sheriff said. "There's several firearms and some archery equipment that's been stolen that's still missing and we're trying to track that down."

Cryer said it wasn't hard to find McQueary. He was on probation for a burglary two years ago and was wearing an ankle monitor during his most recent crime.

"It's rare that we get someone with a GPS tracker attached to him while committing criminal offenses," Cryer said. "In this case, it certainly went a long way to help us get Mr. McQueary in custody."

The sheriff added that he hopes a conviction for the Madill burglary will result in a much longer prison term for Thomas McQueary.
