Man tells deputies four-wheeler is missing

TAHLEQUAH — A local man spoke to Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies Sunday after his four-wheeler went missing.

Christopher Crittenden said left in the all-terrain vehicle’s place was a hose, funnel and six-gallon fuel can. He said a Craftsman tool chest and various tools were also taken.

In other matters, deputies arrested William Robert Murphy, 30, of Greenwood, Ark., on Sunday for public intoxication.

Brian Bluett last week told deputies his brother’s home was broken into and property taken.

Help-In-Crisis representatives reported a break-in last week, and said a Mac computer, surveillance equipment, a DVR, and a printer were taken.

Deputies arrested Luke Kensey Riley, 30, for public intoxication Sunday.

Freddie Carroll earlier this month said his shop was broken into and numerous items were taken, including a 14-foot trailer, a 1960s Lincoln welder, a Craftsman radial arm saw, and other saws, tires, and a Craftsman 22-inch self-propelled mower.

A report was turned in this week after a manager at Garden Walk Apartments said she saw children riding stolen bikes last month. She said she stopped the children, and they told her a man had given them the bikes. The manager returned one bike to its original owner, and turned the others over to deputies.

Stormie Brackett told deputies Sunday that someone took four black 18-inch rims.

Margaret Hance said someone destroyed her mailbox last week.

Bertha Hernandez-Velazquez said she was assaulted at the Fort Gibson dam Sunday, and that the suspect took her cell phone away twice while she was trying to call for help.

Deputies took an information report Saturday about a break-in at a home and vandalism.

Gary Davis last Friday told deputies that someone broke into the sale barn and stole money out of a soda machine. Footprints in some sand outside the door were photographed as possible evidence.
