    A scary situation for a female homeowner on Tuesday.  The event happened around 2 a.m. near 15th and Memorial.  “The homeowner stated that she woke up to the suspect shinning a flash light in her window watching her sleep,” police said.  “She stated he also went to the front door and attempted to open the door.” When officers arrived at the scene, they tracked down Jorge Mandujano.  However, he wasn’t ready to get arrested.  Police say Mandujano took off on foot, but was eventually caught and taken into custody.  He has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail on a peeping Tom count.  [Information from arrest and booking report]
  • Alleged drug traffickers will never learn.  If you’re driving in a vehicle with a lot of drugs, it’s probably best not to give officers a reason to stop you. John Fager III and Mary Collins are the latest to learn that lesson.  They were stopped on Tuesday near east Skelly and South Peoria.  ' I asked both suspects to step out of the vehicle and if there was anything illegal in the vehicle?”  Police said.  “Collins stated that there wasn’t but there was a large brown package in the rear passenger seat that had arrived on their doorstep earlier that did not belong to them.  Collins said they were going to return it to the Post Office.” Inside the box, officers recovered a white crystal like substance, an unknown powdery substance, and a green leafy substance.  Fager and Collins now face counts of possession of marijuana with intent and trafficking meth.  [Information from arrest and booking report]
  • A domestic argument between a man and woman on Tuesday in Cherokee County resulted in a fatal shooting.  Keia Beaver told investigators Jeremy Fagile put his hands around her throat, punched out her window, took her keys and cellphone and told her she wasn't leaving. “She does have injuries consistent with her story,” deputies said.   They both reportedly grabbed guns during the argument and Beaver fired.  Afterwards, she took Fagile to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.  Beaver now faces a manslaughter complaint.   KRMG's told two children were living inside the home and they are now staying with family.
  • A man is suing after he claims negligence by jail employees in Pittsburg County has hurt his life for good. Dustin Lance was arrested back in 2016 on burglary and possession of dangerous substances charges.  During that time, Lance says another inmate gave him a pill that resulted in an erection that lasted for four days. The lawsuit claims multiple employees were aware of the condition and refused to get him help. When he was finally taken to the hospital, the doctor recommended Lance see a Tulsa urology specialist about his genitals. According to Lance, that didn’t happen.  Instead, he was taken back to jail. Now, Lance is seeking $5 million over what he says was gross negligence and a violation of his civil rights.
  • We have updated information regarding a south Tulsa homicide back in May. Court records show Javonta Williams has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 19-year-old Odean Johnson. Investigators say the body of the victim was found near 61st and Peoria. Williams is already in jail on a separate shooting case. Officers also arrested Telisha Williams in connection to the homicide.  She’s accused of lying to mislead the investigation. 
  • We have updated information regarding an on-ramp to 169 at East 31st Street being closed earlier this month. Oklahoma Department of Transportation closed the on-ramp because there were numerous vehicle crashes at that merging point, where traffic is narrowed to two lanes for construction. Now comes word, the on-ramp will remain closed for at least another month. Kenna Mitchell, with ODOT, says similar ramp closures could take place in other parts of Highway 169 as the project moves south. Is this closure causing headaches with your commute? 
  • Two Tulsa teenagers, ages 14 and 16, learned a harsh lesson about economics this week. KRMG's told the two teenagers are accused of stealing items from the EZ Pawn near Admiral and Memorial and selling them at school. The demand was high, so the suspects had to keep burglarizing the store to keep up their supply. In fact, after getting caught red-handed on Monday, they reportedly confessed to six break-ins at the shop. During that time, they took watches, electronics, a sword and a pellet gun. Investigators have not released the names of the two suspects. 
  • It's a disturbing story out of Oklahoma City involving a 24-year-old man and his 2-month-old foster son. An OKC newspaper reports Austin Davis has been booked on a count of child abuse after the little boy died of what doctors believe to be shaken baby syndrome. While being questioned, Davis was willing to confess to investigators. Police say he admitted the child was crying so he “picked him up and shook him.” He even apparently demonstrated what he did to officers. Davis has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. 
  • Three male suspects are on the loose following a home invasion overnight in Tulsa. The events happened around 12 a.m. near 4th and Memorial.  Police tell us the suspects forced their way into a home at gunpoint. “Suspects demanded the victims' wallets, cell phones and electronic devices,” police said.   “After suspects got items, suspects ran to a black Dodge Ram heading eastbound on East 6th Street.” The vehicle was later found unoccupied.  So far, a good description of the suspects hasn't been released. We do know the home was occupied by six people and no one was hurt. Anyone with information regarding the home invasion is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS. 
  • Someone stole a van from a popular Tulsa area pizza joint Sunday night. In a Facebook post on Monday, Andolini's announced a thief took their gelato van from right in front of the store. So far, there are no suspects in the case and management is pleading for the thief to return the vehicle so they can transport gelato to their stores in the area. Management is also asking the public to please call police, if they see the vehicle on the streets or if they know anything about the the theft.

  • So how does Oklahoma compare to the rest of the U.S. on identity theft. The simple answer. Not great. WalletHub says we ranked 39th out of 51, including the District of Columbia. They looked at a number of metrics including the rate of identity theft per capita and the average amount of money lost per incident. The best advice, they say: have strong passwords, use two-step verification where it's available, and get credit monitoring. Sites like Credit Karma and WalletHub itself offer it for free. You can read more about it here.

  • The Nielsen company, which has long measured viewership of television programs, now says it has a way to collect and widely spread details about how many people watch programming produced by streaming services like Netflix and Amazon. Nielsen announced its new service on Wednesday and said that eight television networks and studios, including ABC and NBC, have subscribed to it. Even with Amazon’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” winning an Emmy for best drama last month, the number of people who actually watch the program has remained a mystery. Since 2014, Nielsen has been able to count viewership of streamed programs but reported it only to the companies that stream them. The companies, led by industry behemoth Netflix, have largely kept that information a secret. Now, Nielsen will be able to measure viewership of streamed programs through an audio signature that does not require any action by the programmers to activate it, said Brian Fuhrer, Nielsen’s senior vice president of product leadership.
