Woman’s food stamp card stolen

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies spoke to a woman this week who said two people stole her food stamp card while she was in jail.

Victoria James said she spent about two weeks in jail, and during that time, the suspects took her card from her home. When she confronted the two, they made a verbal agreement to repay her, and also allowed her to keep a car as collateral. James said she later discovered that not only did the car not run, but it didn’t belong to the suspects.

Deputies spoke to Tina Tracey on Tuesday about the theft of medication from her residence.

Jimmy Bell told deputies a suspect drove into the pipe fence at a Mt. Zion church in the northern part of Cherokee County this week.

Monica Alba reported receiving threats recently.

Earl Strangham told deputies his puppy has been missing for several weeks after it followed him down a dirt road.

Deputies took a harassment report from a 17-year-old boy this week.

A death-investigation report was filed recently on the July 6 death of Helen Williams, 67, of Park Hill. The manner of death is listed as natural causes in the report.
