Two men wanted by Jefferson Co.

Cory Wayne Stone and Elijah Trahan

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office needs help locating Cory Wayne Stone of Vidor and Elijah Trahan of Beaumont.

Stone is wanted for theft by deception, a state jail felony. Stone is believed to have defrauded a 54-year-old Nederland man out of $2,700. Stone told the man he had some travel trailers that he was wanting to sell. The man sent the money, but Stone never delivered the trailers.

The Sheriff’s Office is also looking for Elijah Trahan of Beaumont. Trahan is wanted on a motion to revoke probation for a robbery he committed Jan. 13, 2014. Trahan received eight years probation but has since violated his probation, resulting in the warrant for his arrest.

If you know where Stone or Trahan are, call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at (409) 835-8411 or Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
