Deputies probe illegal dumping

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies took a report of illegal dumping on Nalley Road, east of Tahlequah, on Monday.

The manager of the county’s solid waste services received a call about the trash, and went to the site to clean it up. He estimated just less than a truck load of trash had been left. Inside the garbage were several pieces of mail belonging to a Tahlequah woman.

In other matters, deputies arrested Jerrett Dale Sullivan, 28, of Tahlequah, for domestic assault and battery Monday. Deputies responded to a domestic situation at Garden Walk Apartments, where Sullivan had allegedly grabbed a woman by the arm, slammed her into a door, and choked her more than once a day before, causing several injuries.

Matthew Shelby Whitaker, 27, of Hulbert, was arrested Monday morning for domestic assault and battery and public intoxication. He allegedly assaulted a family member and ran from the residence, but later returned and was arrested.

Lanina Nolan on Monday told deputies someone stole her service dog, which looks to be a pit bull breed. Nolan said the dog has extensive training, and would not run away on its own.

James Dudgeon last week told deputies his shop building was broken into on Indian Road.

Randal Steen told deputies Monday that someone took his motorcycle from a residence in the Norwood area. The bike is a maroon 2007 Honda 13R. It has an Oklahoma tag number of 5E680, and a dent on the left-side tank.

Deputies spoke to Brittney Sneed Sunday, who said a man kicked the right fender of her car twice and caused damage.

Brianna Robbins filed a stalking report Monday.

Mary Denson told deputies Monday that someone stole her debit card and used it several times at a convenience store and casino.
