Asked in Criminal Law for Oklahoma

Q: Being charged with a stolen vehicle that I bought and paid for legally.

April 30th 2021, I bought a truck off of a private seller. I paid $17,500.00 for the truck. Before, buying I had the vin number checked on the truck through the Oklahoma Tax Commission, Bumper to Bumper, and NICB's VIN Check. Every single one came back free and clear. Fast forward to July 3, 2021, I had to report my truck stolen through the advisement of my insurance company. I called and notified the police department they came and took my statement and said they would call me. I let a couple of days go by and called the police department which I could not get any answers until the Officer that originally took call was back in the office. I called for a week straight finally I got in touch with the Officer. He was rude and very short with me, I asked if he recovered my truck. He said yes and told me where it was located. Since, I had moved back to Illinois from Oklahoma I paid a trucking company to pick up my truck. As of Sept. 2021 I have a warrant for a stolen truck more details
