Drug Dog Sweep Discovers 125 Pounds of Marijuana in Oklahoma City

An Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department police dog was involved in his third major drug bust of the year this past Monday.

“Thor” is a canine officer who detected what led to 125 pounds of pot during a traffic stop around 7 p.m. Monday.

It occurred on eastbound Interstate 40 and Meridian.  Two people from Georgia have been charged with drug smuggling.

Sheriff’s Spokesman Mark Myers says the driver was pulled over initially for straddling the center line.

“What you’ll find in a lot of these cases is people, who are carrying drugs, many times do the simplest traffic violations,” said Myers. “You know, they’re speeding or they change lanes without signaling, and it leads to an arrest like this.”

Myers says “Thor” was also involved in an arrest during a traffic stop in February for record amounts of meth, and in March, for a record amount of heroin that had a street value of more than $700,000.

“Thor, I tell folks, is just a drug-sniffing rock star,” Myers said.

Private Detective, Richmond House Where Couple Was Murdered Was Burglarized

The family of two people murdered in their Richmond home had a frustrating discovery last week.

Police say a little more than a month after Avery Evans and Karen Simpson were killed inside the home, relatives returned to the murder scene, only to find it had been burglarized.

Police say thieves broke into the Valley Street home sometime in the last week and stole electronics.

Investigators say it’s not uncommon for thieves to target vacated properties.

“A lot of thieves will monitor things like that – whether they know you’re in jail or out of town or whatever – and they’ll target a residence based on that. We initially think that’s probably what happened in this case,” said Robert Mott, assistant police chief.

As for the murders, police are still investigating the case. No one has been arrested.

Missing Person Oregon Mom Still Missing

Missing Oregon mom Jennifer Huston stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Newberg, Ore., and purchased Gatorade, trail mix and a package of over-the-counter sleeping pills — a non-lethal dose — before she disappeared last week, police said Tuesday night.

Police released new details about the search for the married mother of two young boys.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

Detectives said her husband, Kallen Huston, has been cooperative through the whole process, including multiple interviews, and he passed a polygraph test.

Investigators previously released a timeline of Jennifer Huston’s last known activities that included leaving her home last Thursday at 5:45 p.m., going to the Oregon First Community Credit Union in Newberg about three miles away and then to a nearby Circle K gas station on Portland Road.

Police said she spent less than $40 at the gas station, so they believe she was topping off the tank. She withdrew less than $100 from the credit union ATM.

Now, police said she also stopped at Rite Aid. Detectives released a surveillance image from that store of Jennifer Huston in hopes it will lead to additional clues in this case.

Officers said the amount of sleeping pills she purchased would not be enough for a lethal dose.

Police said the expected travel range of Jennifer Huston’s SUV on a full tank of gasoline would be 300 to 350 miles.

Detectives said she had several favorite places she would visit with her family within that range of Newberg, but did not elaborate on specific locations.

At a news conference Tuesday evening, police said there have been no confirmed sightings of Jennifer Huston since the night she disappeared.

Police have received reported sightings in California, Washington state and as far away as Michigan.

According to phone records, Jennifer Huston received a text message from her mother at 6:22 p.m. Thursday, but the phone stopped sending signals at 6:25 p.m.

Police said there remains no evidence of a crime in this investigation. Because police can’t prove she is endangered, they said it’s been difficult obtaining subpoenas related to the investigation.

Her husband told detectives that when he got home on Thursday, she seemed a little stressed out and needed time away from the house. He described that as not being unusual.

Police said if she is safe and doesn’t want to come home right now, they still hope she will reach out to let someone know.

Jennifer Huston is 5-foot-7 with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing black and pink Nike shoes and black yoga pants. She drives a dark green 1999 Lexus LX 470 with Oregon plates WXH 011.

The SUV had a U-shaped crack in the windshield on the passenger side and a Yakima ski rack mounted on the roof.

Any tips or leads should be referred to the Newberg-Dundee Police Department by calling 503-537-1246.

Private Detective, Boyle County Alligator a Hoax

LEX 18 has learned the Boyle County alligator has been found, but it appears to be a hoax.

The Boyle County Sheriff says a deputy found the fake alligator, which appears to be made out of rubber.

The deputy was called to the creek on Mitchell Street in Junction City after someone claimed they spotted the gator again around 8:30 Wednesday evening.

That’s where the deputy found the fake gator that has had Boyle County talking for the last day.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

A neighbor snapped a picture of the reptile. The picture has been circulating and shows what looks to be an alligator’s back and tail.

Many people made their way to the bridge Wednesday, hoping to catch a glimpse of the rumored alligator, but the rumors have now been put to rest after the deputy found the rubber gator.

Missing Person KS Man Visiting FL. Missing for 3 Weeks

A family is desperately pleading for help, looking for a loved one who disappeared after stopping in Central Florida while working at a new job.

Ricky Gonzalez, 25, went missing three weeks ago from a Wildwood truck stop.

Now, his family is here from Kansas City, KS searching the streets for any sign of him.

Gonzalez was passing through Sumter County when he disappeared in Wildwood July 7. He left Kansas City on a Saturday night with a friend to do some temporary work unloading trucks. When they got to Wildwood two days later, they stopped to rest at the TA truck stop on State Road 44.  His friend went to take a shower, and when he returned, Ricky was gone without a trace.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

When he never called his family, they filed a missing person’s report.  Growing increasingly desperate for answers, Ricky’s mother and sister drove from Kansas here to Florida. They’ve been passing out flyers and canvassing local businesses to pick up his trail.

“We’re not going to leave until we get an answer,” his sister Lupe said.

At first, they found no sign of him. Then, Tuesday morning, they might have gotten a break; Lupe asked a clerk at the CVS on E. Hwy 44 if she’d seen Ricky and the woman said she was sure she had.

“She says about a week ago he was in here with a group of landscaper guys buying Gatorade and chips,” Lupe told Fox 35.

Though they still haven’t heard from him, the possible sighting gives hope to Lupe and her mom that they’ll find Ricky.

“Somebody out there knows where he is.”

Gonzalez is in the National Database for Missing Persons, but so far there have been no hits on his whereabouts. If you’ve seen him, please call the police.
