Public drunk arrests made

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested four Kansas, Okla., residents Sunday on public-intoxication charges.

Deputies said a white truck was seen stopped in the road on North 520 Road. Four people got into the vehicle as a deputy pulled up to the scene. Deputies identified the four as Beverly Renee Sanders, 36; Lisa Christine Boroughs, 42; Charles Brian Davis, 42; and Creighton Arlyn Sanders, 37. They allegedly told the deputy they had stopped so they could all urinate. A report of the arrests indicates they all smelled of alcohol.

Deputies arrested two men Friday after a reported fight below the Illinois River bridge. A witness floating by told deputies that Richard Ray Stanley, 41, of Welling, and Marvin Hamilton, 46, of Tahlequah, were fighting in the water. When deputies arrived, Stanley was laying in the water. He was uncooperative with the officer, and allegedly smelled of alcohol and showed other signs of intoxication. He and Hamilton both alleged they had only been “playing around.” Stanley was booked for public intoxication while Hamilton was booked on outstanding warrants.

Deputies arrested Nancy Gloriana Peters-Dunn, 56, of Park Hill, for public intoxication of drugs on Thursday.

A report was filed in late May after Mark Vance said he has been able to recover some of his personal property. Vance had said some of his belongings may have been sold without his authorization.

Stephanie Peters filed an assault report Sunday.

Sharon Lay filed an information report Sunday.

Deputies responded to a residential alarm this weekend. Dustin Dreadfulwater was contacted and after looking around, told deputies he didn’t notice anything missing.

Megan Wright told deputies Friday some of her furniture was removed from a storage building.

Jack Wright told deputies last week that someone took a .22-caliber Ruger revolver.

Connie Greathouse filed an animal-bite report last week.

Mike Ferstl reported vandalism to a storage building  Sunday.
