Wanette man jailed in shooting incident

A Wanette man was jailed Monday on a shooting with intent to kill complaint after his friend suffered a gunshot wound to the head during an alleged argument.

Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Palmer said deputies responded about 1:30 p.m. to a home on Trousdale Road, about one mile west of SH 102 in the Wanette area.

The shooting victim, Randall Roberson, 53, had called 911 for help, Palmer said, and told dispatchers the suspect, Jerry Miller, 62, was still inside the home.

After calling to report his injury, Roberson flagged down a propane truck driven by the Wanette firefighter, who drove him to the end of the road to await an ambulance, Palmer said.

Deputies responded to the scene. Roberson, who suffered an injury along the top of his head, Palmer said, was taken by REACT EMS to Unity Health Center for treatment. Medi Flight was originally called, but wasn’t needed, Palmer said.

Roberson told deputies he was at Miller’s home when the two of them, who are friends, got into an argument. Roberson told authorities he was watching TV when Miller left the room and returned. He allegedly “pointed a gun and pulled the trigger,” Palmer said.

Roberson told deputies Miller was still inside the home with weapons. Deputies, along with the District Attorney’s Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and tribal officers, set up a perimeter around the home and tried to negotiate with Miller, Palmer said, but Miller wouldn’t answer the phone or bullhorn calls from outside.

After about 30 minutes, Palmer said law enforcement officers breached a door to make entry, where Miller, who was reportedly asleep, raised up from the sofa and complied with commands. Palmer said Miller told deputies he didn’t know about anyone getting shot.

Deputies said they found a .22 caliber rille inside the home and arrested Miller on a complaint of shooting with intent to kill. He was booked into he Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center. Formal charges have not been filed.

While the incident remains under investigation, Palmer said it appears both men were drinking alcohol at the time of the incident.

Suspect linked to 20 stolen trailers

A Stratford man remains jailed on several complaints after a stolen trailer from Shawnee led police to link the suspect to at least 20 other stolen trailer cases.  Shawnee Police Detective Ronnie Wilson said a trailer was stolen from the Shawnee area Nov. 9, with the owner passing video on police and giving officers a description of the suspect vehicle.  Detective Greg Gibson noticed the vehicle and followed it, Wilson said, before Cpl. Dan Shumaker conducted a traffic stop.  Wilson said Steven Barnett, 30, had an outstanding warrant for charges filed Oct. 29 in another trailer theft case and was arrested. Detective Wilson and Detective Charles Swantek searched the vehicle and discovered a pawn ticket, Wilson said.
After checking pawn shops, Wilson said police discovered Barnett had allegedly pawned eight different trailers over the past 30 days.  Police tracked the stolen trailer from Shawnee and traced it to being stolen and then sold and bought again at least three times.  Wilson said a unknowing citizen has likely purchased the stolen trailer, so thus far, it hasn’t been recovered.  Barnett allegedly confessed to six of the stolen trailers, Wilson said, but police believed Barnett may have been involved in as many as 20 trailer thefts.

Barnett was recently charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with false declaration of ownership and pawn and grand larceny involving a trailer stolen from Tecumseh. In that case, the Pottawatomie Count sheriff’s office and Tecumseh police investigated a trailer theft that occurred Sept. 20.

Wilson said trailer thefts are a big problem and police believe there are many repeat offenders working this area.
The biggest problem is there’s no registration for utility trailers, and most don’t have any type of serial number or identification on them, making it difficult for police to track down stolen ones, he said.

Those who own trailers are cautioned to keep them locked up and take precautions, such as putting some type of identification numbers, names or similar identifiers in several places on the trailer. A welder can place such numbers on the trailer and owners also should photograph their trailer for easy identification.

Taking a “little bit of time and a little bit of money,” to mark trailers can help police in these types of investigations.  Further charges are pending for Barnett, who remains jailed on $20,000 bond for the first case.

Deputies arrest stabbing suspect

Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputies responding to a disturbance early Thursday morning found a stabbing victim who just had his truck stolen. Within 15 minutes, deputies had located that truck and arrested the stabbing suspect.  Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Palmer said deputies responded to the disturbance at 16208 Kings Road abut 8:30 a.m. Before getting to the location, Deputies Brian Wolfe and Randy Willis found a stabbing victim in the area of SH 3 and Kings Road.

The man, identified at Derek Goss, 28, Seminole, had a stab wound to his face and told deputies his green pickup had been taken by the suspect.
About the same time, Deputy Jimmy Brewer was patrolling at South Rock Creek and Hardesty Road and met the pickup, Palmer said.

Brewer made a traffic stop and recovered a knife. Arrested at the scene was Shawnee resident Christopher Hazelwood, 21, who has an alias last name of Shirey, Palmer said.  Goss was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a stab wound to his face and would probably need surgery, Palmer said.

Deputies don’t think the two men really knew each other, Palmer said, but both were reportedly at a friend’s home when they got into an altercation. Palmer said there were unconfirmed reports about a second victim who may have been stabbed it the arm, “but we don’t know if he exists.”

Deputy Ken VanDuser also worked the scene and Palmer said all of the deputies did a terrific job in locating the suspect and the man’s pickup about three miles from the original scene.  “It was a great team effort,” Palmer said.

Hazelwood, who was booked into jail with the last name of Shirey and with Hazelwood listed as an alias name, remained at the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center Thursday night on complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Bond hasn’t been set in those complaints, but he also was being held on a non-related outstanding warrant for malicious injury to property. Bond for that case was set at $50,000.

Deputies will turn their case reports on this stabbing over to the district attorney’s office for consideration of any formal charges.
