Wagoner County Deputy, Coweta Police Officer, Coweta FOP help larceny victim buy new tires and wheels
On 04-12-2020 Wagoner County Deputy B. Sieg was dispatched to the area of 151st street and 284th East Avenue in reference to investigate a larceny from a vehicle. Coweta PD was initially dispatched until they realized it was in the county jurisdiction and called Wagoner County Sheriff's Office. Upon arrival, Deputy Sieg met the victim and observed a 2002 PT Cruiser sitting on blocks in the driveway. A report was taken from the victim for the Larceny that had occurred. Over the next week, Deputies and Coweta PD Officers kept an eye out for the wheels, as that were very distinct.
After a week had gone by, Coweta PD Officer Nick Winters contacted Deputy Sieg and stated that the Coweta FOP wanted to buy her wheels for her car. They had discovered the victim had to depend on other family members now to transport her due to the larceny of her tires and wheels. The victim had recently moved to Coweta to care for her father, who eventually passed away (unrelated to COVID-19).
After speaking about the situation Deputy Sieg and Officer Winters decided to go in together and get her tires. The victim was notified to what they were going to do so they could make sure they purchased what she wanted and needed. Later that evening, the victims son Joshua Hall contacted Deputy Sieg and thanked him. Mr. Hall advised and said that family had gotten together and collected money to buy tires and wheels from Robertson's Tire in Coweta.
On 04-21-2020 Sheriff Elliott, Officer Winters (on behalf of Coweta FOP), Joshua Hall, and Deputy Sieg met at Robertson Tires in Coweta and purchased brand new wheels and tires and locking lug nuts. Sheriff Chris Elliott, Detective Chuck McCollough, Officer Winters, Officer Barnett, Coweta Assistant Chief Peterson, and Deputy Sieg all helped to install the wheels and tires on victims vehicle. Deputy Sieg additionally provided her with some cloth face masks for her and her other family members to ensure their safety during the COVID-19 crisis. The victim, Joshua Hall, and other family members were excited and grateful to the Coweta Police Department and the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office for providing extra attention and care to her.
Wagoner County Deputy Bill Sieg stated "We as Officers and Deputies were incredibly happy to extend our blessing to this family in their time of need and show them that we care about the members of our community. The victim has been retired and she does not have the means to recover from such a loss without much sacrifice. It is our honor to provide this little bit of help to make sure she can once again have her much needed transportation at her disposal."
