Wyatt Scott was in the backseat and asked to exit the vehicle. Scott told the deputies that the drugs were a black bag. A glass pipe and a Ziploc bag containing what appeared to be 3 grams of methamphetamine were located. Scott was arrested and advised there was a second bag of meth in his pocket. The second bag was recovered at the Cherokee County Detention Center. Scott was booked for possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of paraphernalia.

On May 1, Deputy Robert Stephens was called to West 794 Road and met with Carrie Lane Walker. She advised she was reportedly upset with the victim because he wouldn't have sex with her. She said she hit and scratched the man when he tried to get her off of him. The man grabbed a child, got into a vehicle, and tried leaving the residence. Witnesses said they could see Walker hitting the man as he held the child. The man had visible injuries while the child was unharmed. Walker was arrested and booked for for domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor.

Deputy Joseph Burkett was dispatched to 790 Road May 2 due to reports of a domestic disturbance. Dispatch advised that the caller claimed she had been hit in the face with a shovel and wanted to make a report. Deputy Nick Chute spoke with the victim while Burkett met with Waylan Broom, who had left the area on a riding lawnmower. Broom was arrested and booked for the incident.

On May 1, Deputy Dylan Carder was dispatched to Lowe Drive for a woman who was trespassing. A man said Andrea Cape was forbidden to be on the property and she had entered the shop building without permission. According to court documents, Cape was allowed to remove her personal belongings from the property 30 days after a property division was paid in full, and she could have selected two weekends to remove said belongings. Video footage showed Cape enter the building and then exit with different bags. Carder was pulling up to Cape's camper, which was east of the property, and the woman reportedly ran inside the trailer as she spotted the deputy. Cape refused to exit the camper and said she would only talk to a Cherokee Nation Marshal deputy since she was tribal. The deputy arrived and determined that Cape was forbidden from the property per the court documents. Cape allegedly argued with deputies and said her attorney told her it was OK to be there per documents that were filed in August 2021. Carder advised that ruling was no longer in effect due to new documents that were filed in February 2024. Cape was transported to jail and booked for trespassing and breaking and entering a dwelling.
