Friday afternoon, OSBI agents, investigators with the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, and Rogers County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a former Rogers County Commissioner.

Officials tracked down Kirt Thacker, 45, in Inola where he leases property and arrested him for two counts of embezzlement.

He was then transported to the Rogers County jail where he was booked into the facility.

The investigation revealed Thacker used county-owned equipment on his own property and used county equipment, manpower and materials to build a driveway for the Rogers County Cherokee Association without proper legal authority.

This case has culminated with the Attorney General’s Office choosing to pursue charges after several years of investigating. The court has set Thacker’s bond at $30,000.
