Child abuse reported

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies took a report last week about possible child abuse.

Deputies were told a 9-year-old boy was found to have bruising, which may have been caused when he was spanked numerous times by a couple of people.

Cathy Martin filed a report last week about a pile of gravel being dumped in the middle of an easement and blocking it from being used.

Mark Hugoboom reported the theft of several firearms last week, including a semi-automatic 300 Savage 30-caliber hunting rifle with a maple stock; a pump-action Winchester 12 gage maple-colored firearm; a 270 bolt-action Savage rifle with a black scope and black stock; and a Marlin 30-30 that is dark-maple colored with a camo strap.
