TAHLEQUAH — Authorities arrested a man early Sunday morning after he and others allegedly made threats to two people and then stole their dog.

Cherokee County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Cates was sent to talk with a man and woman who said three people showed up at their door at about 3:30 a.m. Among the three was Mikah J. Wolfe.

The alleged victims said the three were asking questions about a “feud” that the two had nothing to do with. Wolfe was allegedly wielding a “large knife,” and threatened to kill the male victim if he didn’t give him some information.

Wolfe and the other two eventually left. The victims said they later went outside to check on their vehicles, and realized their dog was missing.

Deputies contacted Tahlequah Officer Cory Keele when they learned of a residence the suspects might head toward, and Keele later spotted them. Keele arrested Wolfe and discovered the stolen canine.

The dog was returned to its owners, and Wolfe was booked into jail on charges of public intoxication, possession of stolen property, aggravated domestic assault and battery, three counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, terroristic threats, threatening an act of violence of an animal, and brandishing a weapon, according to booking records.
