On November 4, 2017, at approximately 1:28 p.m., a Wichita County K-9 Interdiction Deputy along with his K-9 partner Cane conducted a traffic stop on US 287 South and Burnett Ranch Rd for a traffic violation. During the stop, the deputy observed several signs of criminal activity. The 64 year old driver consented to a vehicle search. During the search, the deputy located over 80 pounds of high grade marijuana concealed within the vehicle. The driver was placed under arrest and transported to the Wichita County Detention Center where she was charged with Possession of Marijuana Over 50 pounds/ Under 2000 pounds, a second degree felony. The estimated value of the high grade marijuana is over $360,000 dollars.
The phone scam of missing jury duty is going around again. An unidentified caller is making calls informing individuals they have missed jury duty and warrant has been issued for their arrest. The caller is stating they are a deputy with the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office and the warrant needs to be taken care of immediately or jail time is imminent. The caller is telling the individual to go to a store and purchase a large amount of prepaid gift cards and relay the cards’ information over the phone. The Wichita County Sheriff’s Office WILL NOT contact you over the phone if you have missed jury duty or if you have a warrant for your arrest. You will be contacted via mail for jury request or missing of a court date. You will NEVER be asked to process any sort of payment over the phone. If you are contacted by someone from the Sheriff’s Office and have any question regarding the legitimacy of the information please call the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office at (940)766-8170 ext. 8100.
