Daniel Bulin claimed to be held up at gun point by two masked black males and that his 2007 Dodge truck stolen between Cooper and Klondike on Farm-to-Market 1528 on Monday, July 21.
Unfortunately the victim in this case wasn’t actually Bulin. It wasn’t until the next day when the “reportedly” stolen truck was located off County Road 2010 in the Wildlife Management Parking area completely burned.
Delta County Investigator Ryan Brown and Detective David Rowton with the Northeast Texas Auto Task Force interviewed Bulin and discovered several discrepancies in the crime description. After confessing to arson for insurance money, Bulin was charged for felony arson.
