Two Oklahoma City men were behind bars after being caught with a one-ton steel weight stolen from a crane company, police said. Elmer William Momsen, 37, and James Keith Cronch, 41, were arrested March 14 after a team of undercover detectives witnessed two men pull up to Gaffey Crane Inc., 317 N Portland Ave., and depart with the crane weight in the back of their pickup. Detectives were watching the site after the crane company’s manager reported multiple weights ranging from one to two tons missing in recent weeks, police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said. Video surveillance footage provided by the business showed several men using a heavy chain to drag the test weights one at a time from a stack onto the bed of a white, older model pickup during nighttime hours, Wardlow said. Momsen and Cronch were arrested at NW 1 and Allen Street in a white 2000 Dodge Ram with a cab rack that matched another piece of equipment reported stolen from the company, according to a police report. The one-ton steel weight also was found on the truck, the report shows. Fifteen receipts issued by a local scrap yard and made out to Momsen were recovered in the glove box, each representing the sale of various-sized weights between Jan. 9 and March 12 for $45 to $279, according to the report. The missing weights — used to test overhead crane systems — were valued at $2,500 to $3,500 each. Momsen and Cronch each were charged in Oklahoma County District Court with three counts of grand larceny. Cronch also is charged with possession of marijuana and of a controlled dangerous substance. Bail has been set at $12,000 for Momsen, who was being held Thursday night in the Oklahoma County jail. Cronch was released Thursday, according to jail employees. Court records indicate Momsen was convicted on a burglary charge in 2010.
