(Continued)

CHICKASHA —

 
Major Elip Moore of the Chickasha Police Department released a statement expressing excitement over Thornburg's arrest.
 
"It was vitally important to law enforcement and for the safety of the community that he be caught and brought to justice," Moore said. "We were extremely excited that we received viable information and that allowed us to reach across state lines and grab this guy up, bring him back and make him stand and face the charges against him."
 
With such a violent past, Kell hopes this will be the end of the fear Thornburg has caused among Chickasha residents.
 
"I'm glad we've got him and hopefully he'll stay in a long time," Kell said.
