Local man arrested for making threats

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Tahlequah man Saturday for making threats.

Christopher Michael Palmer, 36, was booked into jail for threats of violence, vandalism, and public intoxication. Deputies also arrested 26-year-old Tahlequah resident Henry Wayne Wetselline for public intoxication.

Deputies arrested Jason F. Fortner, 39, of Park Hill, on Sunday for violation of a protective order. Deputies said Fortner was warned several times by dispatchers and deputies not to return to the victim’s home, but was later found there.

Tammy Spradlin spoke to deputies this month after her iPad Mini was taken.

Heidi Berry told deputies a fishing cabin was burglarized recently, and the suspect took fishing poles and a Honda generator. Berry said a trail camera captured a person on a motorbike driving toward the cabin and leaving nearly three hours later.
