Woman reports fraud; satellite provider eyed

TAHLEQUAH — An area woman spoke to Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies  Monday to report fraud.

Dianna Hiler said she noticed she was missing some money in a bank account, and bank officials tracked the issue to a satellite TV provider. She said that company’s officials told her they couldn’t investigate the issue until Hiler filed a police report.

Peter Herold spoke to deputies Monday about possible fraud. Herold said he paid a couple a $50 deposit for the purchase of paint, and agreed to pay them for painting pipe corals at his ranch once the work was complete. Herold said after several weeks, the couple has not shown up and finished the job.

Marcela Ortiz told deputies this week that she was assaulted by another person, who slapped her at a restaurant.

Holly Wilkerson filed an assault report Sunday.

Lydia Adair told deputies someone damaged her truck console and took a camera Monday.

Casey Morris last week reported the theft of saddles.
