Busy time in sheriff’s office

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Garvin County’s sheriff reported it was a busy weekend for his guys as a total of 26 arrests were made through Monday morning.

In a released statement Sheriff Larry Rhodes said suspects have been identified as a direct result of last week’s Crime Stoppers segment featuring information on a burglary at the Pernell Fire Department.

On Friday afternoon county deputies recovered many of the items taken in the June 12 theft.

Also found were other items believed to have been taken in another burglary.

A blue first responder bag and specialty flashlights were recovered but are not from the Pernell FD burglary, while hand-held radios and a green Zoll brand AED defibrillator still have not been recovered.

The recovery of some items led to the search of a Hennepin area home.

No fire department items were found as deputies instead made two arrests on unrelated cases.

Taken into custody were Teddy Macy, 35, on drug allegations and a 16-year-old subject arrested on firearms violations.

The investigation into the Pernell theft is continuing with arrests possible in the near future, Rhodes said.

Also in the Pernell area were a couple of arrests Sunday night on the allegation two subjects were in possession of a diesel fuel trailer that had just been stolen.

Taken into custody were Casey Pease of Elmore City and Michael Wayne of Duncan.

County deputies were assisted with the arrests by Duncan police.

According to Rhodes, these arrests were part of a long term investigation targeting oil field thefts in the southwest part of the county over the past several months.

“The sheriff’s office will continue with increased patrols and proactive investigative efforts to identify any persons who are engaged in this type of criminal activity,” Rhodes said.

The sheriff added it was in the early morning hours on Saturday when deputies arrested Emmily Al Saadi, 35, after a significant amount of drugs were discovered during a narcotics investigation.

Al Saadi was found in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and items used to ingest and distribute narcotics.

“From the amount and type of items found it was apparent Al Saadi planned to package and sell the drugs for individual distribution,” he said.

“Investigators have suspected Emmily Al Saadi as a distributor of illegal drugs in our county.”

At the time of her arrest Al Saadi was free on bonds from three different Garvin County cases, one of which was a drug charge, Rhodes added.
