The Guymon Police Department responded to a report of an embezzlement in the 2700 block of Northeast 28th Street, Wednesday afternoon.
According to GPD Detective Jason Bond, Seaboard officials reported a “truckload of meat,” estimated at $40,000, was picked up by an unknown delivery driver on March 23, was scheduled to reach it’s destination by Wednesday and was reported as missing after it did not arrive.
“No one seems to know who took it,” Bond said. “Seaboard contracts out to a lot of different companies to pick up and deliver the meat and this particular company contracted was trying to subcontract another person.”
Bond went on to report, the subcontracted person named claims he does not work for the contracted company and was in California at the time the meat disappeared. The case is still under investigation and Detectives are working to retrieve documentation to verify the suspect’s story of being in California.
“We’re working on it now and trying to track people down who might have knowledge on it,” Bond said. “Certain laws prevent Seaboard from getting the driver’s information, so they don’t really know who picked up anything.”
