Deputies arrest stolen vehicle suspect
On 06-10-2019 Wagoner County Deputies were dispatched to the area of 413th and 231st in reference to Stolen Vehicle. The owner of the stolen vehicle used a tracking device and then notified deputies that the vehicle was in the area. Deputies located the vehicle a short time later at a residence in the area. A male suspect was taken into custody at the residence when deputies arrived.
When they asked the suspect his name, he gave false information to deputies. Upon speaking to additional individuals, it was discovered that the suspects name was Damian L Shepherd. The suspect was in restraints standing beside a patrol unit and as a deputy approached him to advise him, he knew his name, he fled on foot. Deputies pursued the suspect into the woods, and he was apprehended. He was escorted back to the vehicle and as deputies attempted to place him in the vehicle, he attempted to flee on foot again. He was taken back into custody and secured with leg restraints when placed into a patrol vehicle without further incident.
It was discovered that the suspect had Felony warrants in several Oklahoma Counties. The suspect was transported to the Wagoner County Detention Center and Charged with Possession of Stolen Vehicle.
