JAY – A Delaware County man accused of operating a drug-theft ring is being sought after following the seizure of $70,000 worth of stolen items, said Delaware County Sheriff James Beck.

A stolen gooseneck dump trailer was seized at the residence of Gerald Starr on December 3 in the rural area of Kansas, Okla., located in southern Delaware County, Beck said.  

“The stolen items would be traded out to Starr for drugs,” Beck said.

A search warrant for two mini storage units located in West Siloam Springs belonging to Starr turned up additional stolen property in both units, he said.  

“Guns including a rifle with a homemade silencer were confiscated from the storage units,” Beck said.  

On Wednesday a stolen travel trailer was located in the Flint Creek area on a lot rented to Starr.

“The storage units contained items from Atwoods, Lowe’s, Walmart, and Harbor Freight,” Beck said.  

Starr has a criminal history out of Delaware, Mayes, and Cherokee Counties of theft, drug violations, and concealing stolen property.
