A 21-year-old Ozark man was arrested and booked into the Franklin County Detention Center this afternoon on four felony charges including Attempted Murder, Kidnapping, Possession of a Firearm by Certain Persons, and Absconding.


Thomas Leroy Boen, who has had at least three felony convictions out of Crawford County since 2018, was taken into custody and booked into the jail at 2:14 on Tuesday afternoon on the multiple charges.


In April of 2018, Boen was arrested to for Domestic Battery after police said he assaulted his 64-year-old grandfather. He was given a 24-month sentence for the Domestic Battery and received a 72 month suspended sentence on a separate 2nd Degree Domestic Battery charge.


Less than two months later. Boen was arrested again in Crawford County and charged with eight felonies. That arrested included three Theft by Receiving of Firearms charges, Theft of Property, Possession of Meth with Intent to Deliver, and three Possession of Drug Paraphernalia counts. He skated on those charges, receiving multiple suspended sentences that would have added up to over two decades in prison.


Just a little over a month later, he was hit with Terroristic Threatening and another Theft by Receiving -Firearms charge what was good for another 24 month imposed sentence with 72 months suspended.


Also in 2018, a 49-year-old Altus woman (the mother of Boen) filed for and received an order of protection against Boen that claimed he had committed domestic abuse against her and excluded him from their shared residence.


Calls to the Franklin County Sheriff Office went unreturned at deadline time. We will update this tory when there is new information.
