Sheriff's Beat: Man assumes green light to violate PO

TAHLEQUAH — Sheriff’s deputies say a man they arrested this week felt he could try seeing a woman who had filed a protective order against him because she had read some of his messages to her.

Marlon Germaine Edwards, 42, was booked into jail for violation of a protective order. Edwards had been barred from seeing a woman, but showed up at her house in the Fort Gibson area this week. Deputies found Edwards in his truck outside the woman’s home. He had allegedly been sending the woman messages on Facebook, and though she had never responded, Edwards told deputies he felt it was OK to go to her home because he knew she had read his messages. He also told deputies he had not read the protective order’s instructions not to make contact with the woman.

In other matters, deputies took a report from Michele Miliburg this week. Miliburg said various items were stolen and a house ransacked.

Mike Roberts filed a burglary report this week. The suspect was later found unconscious on a porch. Deputies said the man had been floating the river, became intoxicated and separated from his group before wandering into the neighborhood.

Deputies took a report from a 17-year-old girl whose phone was stolen and later sold on Facebook.

Bonnie Walker filed an information report this week.

C. Myhre spoke to deputies about a vandalism issue recently.

Chelsea Gaines reported the violation of a protective order last week.

George Roberts reported the theft of a safe Monday.
