Arizona Man Charged In Local Horse Theft Case

Arizona Man Charged In Local Horse Theft Case

CREATED May 1, 2014

FRANKLIN, Tenn. – A man turned himself into the Williamson County jail Thursday on charges he sold a Franklin man a $21,000 dollar horse he never delivered.

Raymond Siggins was charged with one count of theft over $10,000.

The case all started in 2008 when the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says Siggins told his client, Stewart Campbell, he had purchased a horse named SNW Joe Fox for him in Arizona.

Campbell sent a check to Siggins and then was told the horse had not been purchased after all.  Siggins told Campbell he would find him a replacement horse but never did to his satisfaction.

Four years later, in 2012, Campbell demanded his $21,000 back when he learned SNW Joe Fox had actually been sold by Siggins to a woman in Alabama for more money.

The TBI started an investigation into 46 year-old the following year and indicted him on theft charges in February 2014.

Siggins was being held in the Williamson County jail on $10,000 bond.
