Police Blotter

Ada — Woman who smuggled gun into jail sentenced

Two women who made national and international news when they were arrested by Ada police March 4 are still awaiting word on when they will be transferred to an Oklahoma penitentiary.

Christie Dawn Harris, 28, and Jennifer Delancy, 30, have been sentenced to 25 and 20-year prison terms respectively by District Court Judge Thomas Landrith. 

It was all part of blind plea agreements to settle multiple felonies involving drugs and guns confiscated in the March incident.

Harris, of Moore, and Delancy, of Oklahoma City, are incarcerated in the Pontotoc County Justice Center.

On March 4, they pulled into the Dairy Lou Drive Inn (located in the 100 block of North Bluff Street) at 3:44 a.m. Officers saw a vehicle parked on the west side of Dairy Lou Drive Inn, and the brake lights were on. They also saw a man standing at the tailgate of the pickup with what appeared to be some sort of power tool.

 Police wanted to know what he was doing,  and he told them some items in the pickup bed were moving around so he stopped to try and secure them.

Officer Kathy Unbewust ran a warrant check on the man, who was identified as Christopher Hutsenpillar,  and found his driver’s license flagged. She had Central Dispatch make contact with the man’s mother, Donna Walker, who  agreed to come and pick up her son and to move the vehicle. 

It was while waiting for Ms. Walker that Unbewust noticed a white Toyota Yaris sitting south of the pickup with the motor running. She approached the vehicle and saw two subjects, one in the driver’s seat and one in the front passenger seat. Both seats were laid all the way back.

That’s when she made contact with Christie Dawn Harris and front-seat passenger, Jennifer Delancy. They told her they were following Hutsenpillar when he had to stop because of vehicle problems.
