MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) — Southern Arkansas University officials say the remains of a horse that was stolen from school grounds several weeks ago have been recovered in southeastern Oklahoma.

University police chief Eric Plummer said in a statement that the McCurtain County Sheriff's office in far southeastern Oklahoma found the remains of "Credit Card" Friday morning. Plummer declined to disclose where the 15-year-old sorrel gelding was discovered.

"Credit Card," four other horses and some equipment were taken from the Magnolia university's Mulerider Stables during the overnight hours of Nov. 2. Members of the school's rodeo team own the horses.

Oklahoma authorities recovered the other four horses on Nov. 15. They found a livestock trailer on Nov. 3, and saddles and blankets were recovered about a week later.
