Police Blotter


Ada —

Unbewust and Officer Link Logan began their questioning and searching. Not only did officers find evidence of drugs, they found weapons and drugs hidden in the  vehicle. Later Unbewust and Logan found weapons and drugs — one of which was a loaded .25 caliber revolver — hidden in Harris’ private body parts.

Unbewust removed the weapon from the woman’s body after observing the handle of the pistol during a strip search at the Justice Center.

The news quickly attracted the interest of readers and talk-show comedians far beyond Pontotoc County after it hit Facebook.

Harris was sentenced to 25 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections  after pleading nolo contendre by Landrith’s District on June 27.

 A plea of nolo contendre means the defendant accepts there is probably enough evidence against her for a conviction but does not admit guilt to the charges.


Change may be all burglars got during break-in at repair shop

Apparently some nights in the burglar business are better than others.

During the night Wednesday, a burglar broke into Rice Small Engine Repair at 214 W. 8th.

The burglar tampered with two vehicles, but according to proprietor Billy Rice, it didn’t appear he got away with a lot for his efforts.

Rice said it appeared a Nissan pickup truck that had been parked on the north side of the business had been moved. The burglar, it appeared, had placed a screw driver in the ignition. 

The truck had then been backed into the alley.

A second vehicle, a Chevy pickup, was parked inside the gated lot and was also unlocked.

An ash tray was lying on the seat and appeared to have been tampered with.

Rice told Ada police officer Kylor Pool the tray had  contained some loose coins  that were now missing. 

Anything else?

For now, that’s all Rice has missed.
