Truck reported stolen found wrecked later

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies this week responded after a truck was reported stolen and later found wrecked.

Alisha Blake said she was asleep when she heard her truck engine start. She first assumed it was a family member behind the wheel, but later realized someone had stolen the truck. Approximately two hours later, deputies were notified that a truck had been crashed not far from where it was stolen. The truck had gone through a fence and had suffered a considerable amount of damage, deputies said.

In other county crime matters, a woman last week filed a report after receiving a strange text message from an unknown number. The message reportedly said, “I hid the body.” Later text messages from the same number claimed the suggestive statement was only a joke.

Kelci Meissner filed an assault report Tuesday.

Deloris Gassaway filed an information report Tuesday.
