Area fugitive now in custody

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — A fugitive sought by law enforcement officials in two states, including here in Garvin County, is now back in custody after he was found in an Oklahoma City night club.

A whole series of warrants for Garet Lyn White’s arrest had been issued here and in Duchesne County, Utah.

The search came to an end early Saturday morning, Jan. 11 when information led to the 25-year-old White being taken into custody.

Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes said on Monday he and Lt. David Lansdale were initially following up on information White could be in the area near Interstate 40 and South Meridian in Oklahoma City.

While checking the area hotels Friday night, Rhodes said they received information that White was at a nearby night club at 2301 South Meridian Avenue.

The Garvin County authorities met with Oklahoma City patrol officers who located White inside the club and arrested him without further incident.

White was transported to Garvin County jail where he was booked in on the outstanding warrants.

Utah authorities have placed a hold for extradition on White.

A couple of weeks ago Rhodes said he was contacted by police in Roosevelt, Utah.

Officers there were looking for White after he failed to show up for questioning on allegations of credit card theft.

They suspected White had fled Utah and was possibly on the way to Oklahoma.

Just over a week ago Rhodes said White called him with the news he planned to surrender himself at the sheriff’s office here. White instead didn’t show up as a search to find him got underway.

The case against White here in Garvin County came early in 2012 when he pleaded guilty to six felony counts of writing forged checks the previous year in the Lindsay area.

With that plea White had a term of several years in prison deferred until he completed a drug court treatment program ordered by the court.

When he failed to complete the program a warrant for his arrest was issued last summer.

  • ‘Rio 2’ average effort, but still a family win

    Though Hollywood will never truly abandon milking characters for franchises well past the expiration date, I will say that even the most mediocre series seems to be getting at least more tolerable than in the past.
