Suspicious vehicle report sparks pursuit, nets 3 arrests in Bethel

McCune

Pacheco

Scalf

 

An area resident’s call to the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday about a suspicious vehicle near Bethel turned into a brief pursuit and ended with three arrests.

Undersheriff Travis Palmer credits those arrests to the alert resident and urges others to contact authorities about suspicious activity.
The concerned citizen from Bethel alerted deputies about the suspicious vehicle in the area of Betty Drive and Waco Road.
Deputy Veronica Stidham responded and spotted that vehicle, Palmer said, and noticed several items in the back of that vehicle.
When the driver reportedly ran a stop sign, the deputy tried to initiate a traffic stop, which turned into a two-mile pursuit instead, Palmer said, ending with the driver fleeing on foot.

The deputy held two passengers at gunpoint until back-up deputies arrived, Palmer said, then deputies set up a manhunt perimeter in search of the driver.

A gun that was reportedly thrown from the vehicle during the chase was found, Palmer said.
The manhunt ended with the suspected driver in custody behind a relative’s home about a mile from the where the pursuit had ended, he said.
Palmer said a smoker grill in the back of the vehicle had been stolen. Deputies also identified a stolen vehicle from Oklahoma City, which had switched plates, as part of this case.

Arrested on a complaint of possession of stolen property was the driver, Travis Pacheco, 34, Palmer said. He was being held in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center Wednesday night, awaiting an initial court appearance today.

Jail records show Pacheco was being held on a failure to appear warrant for a 2016 case of possession of a firearm after former felony conviction.
His passengers — Brandon J. Scalf, 36, and Tyler Wayne Perry McCune, 22, and also were arrested and were jailed Wednesday night, Palmer said. Jail records show Scalf was being held on a warrant while McCune was being held on a complaint of receiving/possession of stolen property.
Formal charges have not been filed in Wednesday’s incident, but case reports will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office for consideration.
Palmer said deputies wish to thank the anonymous person and said the Sheriff encourages other residents to alert them of any suspicious activity.

Deputies arrest five burglary suspects

Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputies arrested five suspects Thursday shortly after a residential burglary.  Sheriff Mike Booth said Deputy Chad Pope made a traffic stop of an alleged suspect vehicle, which led to recovery of stolen property and the arrests.  Pope said a rural residential break-in had been reported and the suspect vehicle, a white Dodge pickup, left the area. As Deputy Ken VanDuser worked the initial burglary scene, Pope, also responding, noticed the possible suspect vehicle and followed it from the area of U.S. 177 and Hardesty Road into Shawnee.  With information matching the suspect vehicle, including partial tag numbers, Pope said he made a traffic stop at Kickapoo and Ridgewood streets.  The truck, which turned out to be stolen, had items in the bed of the pickup that matched those taken from the burglary, Pope said, including a computer.  Five persons in the truck — two males and three females —were arrested at the scene, Pope said.  As he continued to work the case Thursday evening, the suspects were being booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center on complaints of burglary and possession of stolen property.  Watch for further updates.
