Deputies speak to woman about fraud


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

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

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.

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.

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.
