Sheriff's Reports 3-28-24: Man carted off to jail for DUI, other offenses

Deputies were called after an intoxicated driver caught the attention of people who deemed him as suspicious.

On March 26, Cherokee County Sheriff's Lt. Tanner Hendley was dispatched to Garden Walk apartments for suspicious activity. Dispatch advised that the driver of a white van kept stopping at various places and parking. They said the man went to the side door of the van and stayed there for a minute before getting back in the vehicle. They also said the driver was playing loud music and was being suspicious. Deputies made contact with the driver, James Ross Jr., who appeared intoxicated and claimed he consumed alcohol. Ross was arrested after a field sobriety test and booked for driving under the influence, transporting an open container, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputy Jeremy Alverson responded to Dollar General in Woodall March 23 due to a man who possibly stole merchandise. Employees said Whitney End was seen placing items in a tote. Alverson met with End, who had the tote in the bed of a truck. The deputy said items from the store could be seen in the tote. End, who appeared nervous when deputies asked for his identification, was told to exit the truck after Alverson observed a large knife on his person. End initially said the items in the tote came from Fort Gibson, but he admitted to taking the items from Dollar General after deputies reviewed video footage. End was transported to jail and booked for shoplifting and warrants.

On March 23, Deputy Triston Hoskin was called to reports of a possible disturbance at Garden Walk apartments. The deputy arrived to find Timothy Dunn holding a beer while yelling profanities and beating on a door. Dunn said nothing was going on and he was trying to get back inside his residence. Hoskin spoke with the victim who said Dunn became physical with her and a child who tried to intervene. She said the man pushed her and then choked her. Dunn, a tribal member, was arrested and booked for domestic assault by strangulation and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor.

Deputy Jimmie Robertson was dispatched to East 690 Road March 21 for a possible trespassing issue. He met with Christy Marie Allen, who he previously trespassed from the same property recently. Allen claimed she was invited back to the property and the property owners said they allowed her there. Robertson advised he couldn't arrest the woman since she was allowed back. The property owners asked the deputy to trespass Allen again and have her leave. Allen reportedly became agitated when told to the leave. Approximately 50 minutes later, Robertson was advised that Allen returned to the property and deputies were told she left on foot. Allen was located nearby and admitted to returning to the property to retrieve her belongings, even though Robertson had told her earlier to have someone else get her remaining property. Allen was told she was going to be arrested and tried pulling away from the deputy. She was arrested and transported to jail for booking.
