The officer followed the vehicle to observe behavior and, after witnessing it cross the white fog line, conducted a traffic stop at 2100 S. Main. After a field sobriety test and a test at Kingfisher Hospital, she was ultimately transported to the Kingfisher County Jail for booking.
Jan. 25, 1:30 p.m. — Stolen vehicle. Sgt. Justin Trumbley was dispatched to Johnsons of Kingfisher dealership in reference to an identity theft. A representative of the dealership advised that on Jan. 8, they had sold a Jeep Grand Cherokee to a Roger Johnson of Justice, Illinois, after verifying his photo I.D., credit application, proof of insurance, etc., and had the vehicle shipped to Johnson via a transport company.
On Jan. 25, the dealership received a call from a Roger Johnson of Lockport, Ill., who advised that he had been the victim of fraud. He provided all his personal information that said his identity had been stolen and used to purchase the vehicle. Johnson had been alerted to the fraud by his credit card company.
Upon reviewing the file, the Johnsons dealership believed the purchase was fraudulent and reported the vehicle as stolen.
A detective in Justice, Ill., advised Sgt. Trumbley that the stolen Jeep had been located in that city, at the same apartment complex where it had been delivered. The vehicle was then recovered and impounded.
Jan. 25, 2 p.m. — Larceny from a retailer. Lt. Travis Gray responded to a shoplifter at the Kingfisher Walmart, 200 W. Starlite Drive. A 37 year-old Mangum man was found to have allegedly passed all points of sale without paying for a pair of boots valued at $24.

Jan. 29, 9:54 a.m. — Fraud. Capt. David Catron took a report via the Jenks Police Department from a man in Acworth, Ga., who was an apparent victim of fraud. The man stated that he had agreed to purchase a dog for $700 from a company he had found on the Internet that was based out of Jenks.
The funds, he said, were to be transfered from his local Walmart store to another Walmart store and the cash was picked up at the store in Kingfisher.
The man became suspicious because the seller had called him and told him he needed $900 more to purchase a special dog box so the dog could be shipped to Atlanta, Ga.
Capt. Catron’s report stated that attempts will be made to follow up with Walmart to see if they had retrieved any information from the money transfer.
