Drew County Sheriff's Deparment Arrest Man Wanted Out of Oklahoma


The Drew County Sheriff’s Department and US Marshalls from three states arrested a man Wednesday, July 17th, who was wanted out of Oklahoma for an armed robbery that occurred on Thursday, July 12th in Colbert, Oklahoma.

According to Sheriff Mark Gober, while investigating an unrelated incident on Tuesday, July 17th, he received information that a man wanted by the Bryan County Sheriff’s Department for an armed robbery of a convenience store located in Colbert, Oklahoma, was staying at a residence located at Pine Haven Trailer Park in Monticello. James Marvin Carty, 64 of Kemp, Oklahoma, and his son James Michael Carty, age 42, are accused of stealing a cash register at gun point from Frank’s Corner Store in Colbert. Video surveillance of the robbery found after performing a Web search helped Drew County investigators verify that the elder Carty was in fact a suspect in the Oklahoma case. Drew County authorities began surveillance of the home as they waited for authorities from Bryan County Sheriff Department and US Marshalls from Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas to arrive. James Marvin Carty was arrested without incident at approximately 8:00 PM last night. Carty waived extradition and was taken back to Oklahoma to await his trial. James Marvin Carty was out on parole after previously serving a life sentence for murder and robbery which occurred in Texas.

The other suspect in the robbery, James Michael Carty, was arrested Monday, July 16th in Denison, Texas on an armed robbery warrant. He is also wanted in Tennessee for aggravated robbery.
