Deputies arrest man accused of blocking traffic on S.H. 82

TAHLEQUAH — County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Tahlequah man this week after receiving reports of an individual blocking traffic on State Highway 82.

Deputies said when they arrived in the area, Samuel Allen Dreadfulwater, 25, and a woman, were walking down the road, trying to flag down cars. When speaking to deputies, Dreadfulwater allegedly gave them a false name and said he didn’t have identification. When another deputy arrived, he recognized Dreadfulwater, who eventually admitted he provided a false name because he believed he had warrants for his arrest. He also reportedly told deputies he has several names and birth certificates. Dreadfulwater was booked for providing false information to avoid prosecution.

Deputies spoke to Ardith Taylor on Wednesday about the theft of three guns.

Freda Purtle told deputies Wednesday someone attempted to open bank accounts in her name, and also fraudulently made charges to a credit card.

Garland Phillips reported mail theft Wednesday. He said his mail was apparently taken from a mailbox several times, and that the postman confirmed he’d delivered mail to Phillips on those days.

Mikky Weaver told deputies Wednesday that an intruder broke into his Jeep and took a wallet and money.

Preston Thompson reported a theft of batteries Tuesday.

Paula Ballard told deputies recently that someone used a check, which had previously been stolen, at a convenience store in the Park Hill area.

Two reports were filed this week on unrelated cases of forcible fondling of children.
