Man sentenced in stolen property case

A Henryetta trucking company owner pleaded guilty in Washington County to five counts of concealing stolen property, one count of conspiracy and one count of racketeering, according to a media release from the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office.

Phillip Howard Hawk, 73, received a 10-year sentence, according to the release. He will serve six years in prison, followed by four years on probation. Hawk also was ordered to pay a $500 fine for each count and must pay restitution to the victims.

Hawk was indicted in July 2012, along with five others on 15 counts involving stolen farm equipment and vehicles between 2007 and 2011 in McIntosh, Sequoyah, Craig, Nowata, Oklahoma, Osage and Washington counties.

A property estimate on the thefts totaled almost $750,000.
