NASHVILLE-The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained an indictment for an Arizona man, accused of taking money in a horse sale, never delivering, and then keeping the money for himself.

At the request of District Attorney General Kim Helper, TBI Special Agents began investigating 46-year-old Raymond Siggins on August 20, 2013. During the course of the investigation, Special Agents determined a Franklin man, Stewart Campbell, paid Siggins $21,000 in 2008 for a horse named SNW Joe Fox, which Siggins told Campbell he purchased for him in Arizona. Siggins later told Campbell he did not purchase the horse, though the Franklin man had already mailed him the check. Siggins offered to find Campbell a replacement horse, but never did so to his satisfaction.

In 2012, the Franklin man demanded his money back, upon learning Siggins actually Arizona Man Arrested, Charged in TBI Horse Sale Theft Casepurchased SNW Joe Fox and later sold it to an Alabama woman for more money, keeping Campbell’s $21,000 for himself.
