Wagoner man arrested on complaint

TAHLEQUAH — A Wagoner man was arrested by sheriff’s deputies on Monday following a concerned pedestrian call to 911.

Jarrod Don Riggs, 30, arrested on complaints of public intoxication, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, child neglect, child endangerment, no driver’s license and no child restraint. The reporting person was traveling westbound on State Highway 62 when he noticed a car in the oncoming lane stopped without the headlamps activated.

According to the report, the witness told deputies Riggs appeared incoherent when he attempted to ask Riggs if he needed help and became concerned for the 3-year-old child sitting on Riggs’ lap when he dialed 911. The child’s mother was contacted, and police allowed her to transport the child home. The report indicated Riggs admitted to “using again” when asked by deputies and he told law officials that he had been “smoking PCP.”

Glenn Martin spoke to sheriff’s deputies on Monday to report his trailer stolen from a friend’s residence while they were fishing on July 14.  Martin’s description of the trailer noted a 3,000-pound electric winch mounted on the front and “0923” is welded on the trailer’s tongue.

Katie Chaffin filed a theft of motor vehicle report on Monday. The report indicated the 1985 green Ford half-ton pickup was taken from her Welling property. Chaffin told deputies the truck was inoperative and had been stored in her field as collateral for a debt owed to her. The report indicated that for two years, the debtor agreed to Chaffin’s keeping the truck. Chaffin told deputies a relative mowed around the truck July 11 and it was discovered missing on Sunday.
