Man booted from club, then arrested


TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police arrested a man early Tuesday morning after the suspect was kicked out of a local club.

Zachery R. Adams, 21, of Fort Gibson, was arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest after police responded to a fight in progress.

Adam Austin, 26, of Tahlequah, was arrested Monday for petit larceny. Police said Walmart employees reported a man ran from the store with a stolen car charger on Friday; then, on Monday, the suspect – Austin – was found sitting inside a vehicle near Morgan and College streets.

Police took a report last week after Randall Skidmore said he was robbed at gun-point while making a deposit at the Tahlequah Public Works Authority building near the Cherokee County Courthouse.

Racy Vernell spoke to police Monday about his car being stolen.

Police on Monday received information from Ohio State Juvenile Services that a girl missing from that state might be in Tahlequah. Officers located the girl and placed her in a shelter, pending transportation back to Ohio.

Andrea Thompson told police Monday her door was kicked in and trash and clothes were scattered in the house and front yard.

Officers took a report at Finish Line on South Muskogee Avenue Saturday after employees said people entered the store and took a key.

Karen Taylor filed an assault report Friday.

Police were called to Walgreen’s last week when employees said they received two altered or forged prescriptions from a customer.
