Henryetta police arrested two adults and a juvenile following a vehicle chase and foot pursuit this week.
Officers had stopped a car on an equipment violation around 10:30 Wednesday night. The driver of that car sped away resulting in local police, officers from the Dewar police department and sheriff’s officers giving chase.
According to police chief Steve Norman, the vehicle’s occupants were said to have thrown out a quantity of drugs and paraphernalia.
The vehicle finally became disabled near the Bramble and 230 Road intersections. The occupants of the car tried to run but they were soon captured.
The names of the adults arrested have not been released by police.
Henryetta police had their hands full trying to round up an escaped horse Sunday night.horse
The miniature horse got out of its pen in the McLaughlin and Dollins area shortly before midnight.
Officers Matthew Duke and Richard Hall tried to corral the four-legged fugitive but wound up in a brawl that left one officer wounded.
Seems Trigger didn’t want to be taken into custody and started kicking and even bit one of the officers on the arm.
The police were able to eventually get things under control and Trigger was returned to his pasture. A sign on the fence warns people that they need to beware of the animal.
Officers declined to say if there would be any assault charges filed against the animal.
semi crash
The driver of a semi-trailer loaded with concrete walked away from a crash Thursday morning on Interstate 40. The big rig was eastbound shortly before sunrise when it went out of control and crashed on the south side of the highway. The truck flipped completely over spilling its cargo in the ditch and completely flattening the cab of the vehicle. The driver escaped with only a minor cut to his stomach. Troopers are still trying to determine the cause of the accident.
That was the second semi crash in the area in two days. Wednesday morning a semi went off the roadway on the Indian Nation Turnpike about four miles south of town. It rolled twice trapping the driver in the cehicle. That truck driver had to be freed form the truck by members of the Henryetta fire department. He was said to be in stable condition with internal injuries.

fake bill
Henryetta police are investigating what may be a counterfeit operation in the area.
A man and woman were said to have passed a fake $10 at a local convenience store Tuesday morning. The bill was spotted by the clerk and police called.
Police chief Steve Norman said the matter is still under investigation but urged retailers to use caution when they receive a suspect bill.
He said there are several ways to ensure currency is real. They include:

  • Color-shifting ink: If you hold the new series bill (except the $5 note) and tilt it back and forth, please observe the numeral in the lower right hand corner as its color shifts from green to black and back.
  • Watermark: Hold the bill up to a light to view the watermark in an unprinted space to the right of the portrait. The watermark can be seen from both sides of the bill since it is not printed on the bill but is imbedded in the paper.
  • Security Thread: Hold he bill a light to view the security thread. You will see a thin imbedded strip running from top to bottom on the face of a banknote. In the $10 and $50 the security strip is located to the right of the portrait, and in the $5, $20 and $100, it is located just to the left of the portrait.
  • Ultraviolet Glow: If the bill is held up to an ultraviolet light, the $5 bill glows blue; the $10 bill glows orange, the $20 bill glows green, the $50 bill glows yellow, and the $100 bill glows red – if they are authentic!
  • Microprinting: There are minute microprinting on the security threads: the $5 bill has “USA FIVE” written on the thread; the $10 bill has “USA TEN” written on the thread; the $20 bill has “USA TWENTY” written on the thread; the $50 bill has “USA 50” written on the thread; and the $100 bill has the words “USA 100” written on the security thread. Microprinting can be found around the portrait as well as on the security threads.
  • Fine Line Printing Patterns: Very fine lines have been added behind the portrait and on the reverse side scene to make it harder to reproduce.
  • Comparison: Compare the feel and texture of the paper with other bills you know are authentic.
