Deputies make several alcohol-related arrests

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies made several alcohol-related arrests near the Illinois River last weekend.

Brandon Chase Loyd, 20, of Inola, was booked into jail for driving under the influence and possession of marijuana when he was stopped and allegedly admitted to consuming a couple of beers during a concert. During a check of the car, deputies found a glass pipe in the center console and a clear bag of a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana. Loyd allegedly admitted the bag of pot was his. During a state’s test, Loyd showed to have a breath-alcohol content of .08. A passenger in the vehicle, Cody Thomas Reier, 21, was booked for possession of marijuana, public intoxication, and possession of paraphernalia when he allegedly claimed the pipe.

Jared Dustin Bunch, 27, was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday.

Luis Alberto Barraza Calvillo, 31, of Tahlequah, was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence, transporting an open container, and no driver’s license. Deputies said Calvillo had a breath-alcohol content of .16.

In other matters, deputies spoke to Jimmy Walls last week after three life jackets were stolen from a boat.

Deputies filed a death-investigation report last week on 54-year-old Janice Head, of Park Hill. Head’s cause of death is believed to be natural, the report indicates.

Deputies also filed a report last week on the death of Melanie D. Summers, 32, of Park Hill. According to the report, information was gathered at the scene indicating Summers committed suicide. Her body will undergo an autopsy, the report says.
