Deputies speak to woman about fraud

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies spoke to a woman last week about fraud.

Christina Jackson told deputies a man and woman have been fraudulently using her information, and they have also taken her property. She said she has had to make similar reports in several other states in recent years.

In other matters, deputies spoke to Ray Waldroop Sunday after Waldroop noticed one of his kittens had been shot near its tail.

April Parris told deputies Sunday she was tackled by a man and then pinned to the ground. Parris said the incident happened after she picked up the man’s cell phone, which was on the floor and in danger of getting wet from water.

Rodney Kimble told deputies Saturday that his scaffolding and several other metal objects have been stolen. Kimble believes the items may have been taken by people who collect metal and exchange it for cash at various business.

Aaron Rogers filed a trespassing report Sunday and told deputies a car has been pulling into his driveway at night without its lights. He said the occurrence has gone on for several months, and when he tried to chase the car, it fled the scene.

Heather Liechti recently told deputies someone has stolen items from her deceased father’s garage.

Kevin Jacobs told deputies Friday he loaned a woman a phone, she ran up the bill, and she now refuses to pay for the charges.

Carl Childers told deputies Friday that his ex-girlfriend entered his home while he was in the hospital and took medication, checks, and credit cards.

Wesley Girty spoke to deputies last week after he found his home had been broken into. A coffee table was damaged, and some DVDs were taken.

Brenda Hooper spoke to deputies Sunday after noticing two of her horses were missing from a field. One horse is about 12 years old and is white and brown with a “lightning-strike look” on one side, black ankles, and three white feet. The second is a red 1-year-old with white feet.

Daymon Eatmon, a bus driver for Tahlequah Public Schools, spoke to deputies last week after a window on a bus was shot out with a BB gun while dropping students off at Garden Walk Apartments.

A death-investigation report was filed Sunday on Johnny Ray Reed, 76, of Tahlequah. Reed’s manner of death, as listed on the deputy’s report, is apparently of natural causes.
