Sheriff's Beat: Burglary under investigation

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies are investigating an office burglary at Garden Walk Apartments.

Dawn Osburn, an assistant manager at the apartment complex, called deputies and said a rock had been thrown through an office window. A lengthy list of items were stolen from the office, including numerous pieces of jewelry – several of which had been customized – and an office phone, computer, Galaxy tablet and more. Among the customized jewelry was a Coalgate Wildcat class ring with the name of “John” engraved on it, and a six-stone mothers ring with the names Jerry Don, Naaman, John, Dessiree, J.D. and Bobby.

In other matters, deputies took a report from Roger Bower on Sunday after Bower discovered his home had been burglarized. The suspect took a flat-screen TV, DVD player, jeans, cowboy boots, three rings, and a laptop.

Jessie Philpott told police several items, including cash, were taken from his home recently. Deputies said foot prints were left behind on two doors, which had been kicked in.

Lynn Burris told deputies a Buick was stolen last week. It was later recovered by sheriff’s deputies in Adair County.

Jessica Teague told deputies she was the victim of a scam on Craigslist. Teague said she believed she was purchasing tickets to see George Strait, but after paying, never received the tickets.
