Flap over storm shelter reported

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies spoke to a man this week about a storm-shelter company that took back its product before completing installation.

Larry Studie said he made a down payment on a 12-person storm shelter and the company delivered it to his home to install. Rocky ground led the company to halt its attempts, and Studie was told they would need to get piece of heavy equipment to help with the installation. Studie later called the company for an update and was told he would have to pay the rental fee for the backhoe, along with an extra $100 per hour for labor.

Studie told deputies the contract he signed did not mention paying for the rental. The company later went to Studie’s property and took the storm shelter, he told deputies, while he was away.

In other matters, Ginger Zies reported the burglary of a rental property this week. Zies said a 42-inch Visio flatscreen LCD TV, Sony DVD player, and TV converter box were taken, along with fishing tackle, reels, and decorative items.

Samantha Booth spoke to deputies this week about her purse and medication being stolen out of her vehicle.

Suzanne Drywater recently reported a home burglary.

Donna Rhodes recently filed a report about a woman who frequently vandalizes her trailer and vehicle.

Josh Garner filed an assault report earlier this month.

Deputies took an animal-bite report Monday after a 17-year-old was bitten by a dog.
