Police Beat: Woman jailed on outstanding warrants

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police on Sunday arrested a local woman on outstanding warrants and drug-related charges.

Officer Pam Bell said she made contact with 36-year-old Melissa Kirk in the 1,300 block of North Vinita. Kirk was being sought on outstanding warrants, Bell learned. According to Bell, Kirk was adamant she didn’t want to take her purse that was in her vehicle. During an inventory, officers found a glass pipe with a residue inside the purse. Kirk allegedly told Bell the pipe was not hers, but said she would “take the charge.” She was booked on the warrant and for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Vurginia S. Dolton, 20, of Tahlequah, was arrested for shoplifting at Wal-Mart on Saturday.
