Local News

    We have updated information regarding a Broken Arrow detective who was put on leave after part of the evidence in the cases against Michael and Robert Bever went unaccounted for. Gayla Adcock has submitted her resignation, effective March 1. She has also waived her right to a pre-determination hearing. This means Adcock will not be able to address supervisors before her disciplinary hearing goes forward. Adcock's attorney has confirmed she has taken a position with another department in the southern part of the state.  He didn’t get into specifics.  
  • KRMG has previously told you about the high arrest rates the Tulsa Police Department has had the last couple of years with homicides. Now comes word TPD is doing well with bank robbery cases as well. The recent arrest of Timothy Hayes for a November Bank of America robbery, gives the department a 100% solve rate for the crime in the past two years. “Don’t rob banks because you’re going to get caught,” one detective confessed.   Investigators credit teamwork, the ability to work with other agencies, and the banks themselves as big contributors to their success rate. For reference, if you get convicted for a bank robbery, it means time in federal prison.  
  • It's a startling reminder of just how fast burglars can work. Jeannette Allen was recently away from her Owasso house near 59th Street and 145th for just two hours. When she returned home, there was a surprise waiting for her.   “Our door had been kicked-in,” Allen said.  “Our door frame was out.  The whole room was ransacked.” The suspects got away with jewelry, guns, knives, electronics, medications, check books, and more. So far, no arrests have been made.  Investigators haven’t released a description of any suspects.   Anybody with information regarding the burglary is asked to call the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.  
  • After the tragedy in Florida this week, a concerned parent of a Thoreau Middle School student wants answers at to why she never heard back from Tulsa Public Schools regarding an email she sent them. We're not going to name the parent, but she sent an email to TPS along with a screen shot showing an Instagram conversation where a student appeared to threaten a shooting. “Somebody got it because it was sent on my end,” the parent said.   TPS police tell us they're not sure what happened, but threats are a priority. “I’m not sure where the disconnect was in the case here, but we take all of our reports about concerns or any type of threats extremely serious,” a TPS officer said. The district is looking into the matter.  There is some good news for parents. It turns out someone else also reported the student for the same thing. District leaders say appropriate disciplinary action was taken in that instance.   
  • A male driver is lucky to have non-life threatening injuries following an early Saturday morning crash. Tulsa officers at the scene report the rollover crash happened around 12:44 a.m. near 18th and Peoria. “He was traveling northbound on Peoria at which point he lost control of his vehicle due to the weather and possible speed,” an officer said.  “Upon losing control, he hit a retaining wall and vehicle flipped.” The crash is still under investigation.  As of early Saturday morning, no arrests have been made.  
  • A man is dead following an auto-pedestrian collision Friday night in Tulsa. Officers at the scene tell us the crash happened around 10 p.m. near 21st and Memorial. “The pedestrian was crossing the street from the north to the south and was struck by a vehicle,” police said.  “The vehicle was heading eastbound.” The driver did stay at the scene. Investigators don't believe the driver was at fault for the collision.   Investigators reports the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the hospital.  As of early Saturday morning, his name hasn’t been released.  
  • We're learning more about a dangerous situation at The Dove School of Discovery Friday afternoon. A Tulsa police supervisor tells us Amy Thomas lost control of her vehicle while waiting in line for her 4-year-old child. She ended up driving through a fence and onto the playground. “Luckily, no children were on the playground at the time,” police said.   Officers believed at the time Thomas was intoxicated.  She has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail on multiple counts including DUI drugs.
  • When you look outside this morning, expect to see soggy conditions. However, National Weather Service Meteorologist Chuck Hodges says the Tulsa area won't remain wet all day. “We’ll probably get some filtered sunshine later in the day,” Hodges said.  “Temperatures should be topping out pretty close to 60.” The low Saturday night will be around 34 degrees. Sunday is probably the better bet for outdoor activities.  NWS is reporting cloudy skies and the high will be close to 67 degrees.   The Tulsa area could reach 72 degrees by Monday.  
  • A Rogers County man was arrested for allegedly giving his 12-year-old son advice on how to kill himself. Sheriff's Maj. Coy Jenkins, with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office, said Friday that the boy suffered minor burns after following his father's suggestion that he light himself on fire. Michael Joseph Jensen was arrested Wednesday on a child neglect warrant.  The boy's grandparents were able to put out the fire. Jenkins said the son had previously attempted suicide and was living with his grandparents when Jensen visited.  Authorities don't believe that Jensen was serious when he told his son to set himself on fire and shoot himself in the head. 
  • Tulsa Police responded to reports of shots fired at the 11th and Garnett QuikTrip.  KRMG news has leaned officers believe a hispanic male dressed in a blue hoodie and jeans fired the shot at a security guard. Poilice say the man then ran into woods behind a nearby Sonic. Cops used a K-9 officer and the man was quickly found and arrested.  Lewis and Clark Elementary school was briefly locked down during the search.

  • At least 17 people were killed in a high school shooting Wednesday afternoon in Parkland, Florida and more than a dozen others were injured, according to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

  • Another massacre at an American school means another round of finger-pointing, cries for reform, and searching for answers. In Tulsa, as in cities across the country, people talk about their fears and their opinions on what needs to be done. Diners at Tally’s Good Food Café (11th and Yale in Tulsa) had a wide range of opinions. One man said teachers should have guns; just feet away, a woman said there’s no excuse for anyone to have military-style weapons unless they’re in the military. Rick Chandler and his wife were about to order their breakfast when KRMG asked them for their thoughts. And he had a lot to say, because it turns out he carries a firearm with him at all times, but also teaches martial arts and counsels parents and teachers who have had problems with bullying. “I’ve got six black belts in different styles, and I tell every one of my students ‘if there’s a door, get out,’” Chandler said. The best bet is to avoid the situation entirely, by being aware of your surroundings at all time, he added. And if avoidance or escape are no longer options, one is well-served by having at least some training in self-defense. A couple miles away, owner David Stone at Dong’s Guns, Ammo and Reloading near Admiral and Yale told KRMG guns aren’t the problem - and gun control’s not the solution. Unlike when Barack Obama was president, however, he didn’t see a spike in sales after the latest mass shooting. “It’s because President Trump has made it very clear he’s not about to take away gun rights,” Stone told KRMG. And after a few political leaders laid some of the blame for school shootings on violent video games, KRMG visited Ivan Juarez, owner of Delta Games in Tulsa, near 21st and Memorial. Juarez told KRMG he’s heard it all before. “Every time something violent with teenagers, or a teenager does something violent, they also mention video games - because that’s what teenagers do,” he told KRMG. Research on the possible correlation between violent games and actual violence is all over the map. Perhaps the most telling statistic is the large drop in the national homicide rate in recent years - years in which video games were invented, and have become vastly more complex and realistic. Many researchers point out that the statistical sample of people who commit mass killings is so small, it’s impossible to establish a credible causal link. And, clearly, millions of people play the same games, without acting out with actual violence. Back at Tally’s, a man who began the conversation by saying it’s time to arm the teachers didn’t take long to admit perhaps that’s not a solution. In fact, he said, “from what happened yesterday (Wednesday) and what I understand, I don’t think you could stop it. When they get in their mind they’re going to do something, they’re going to do it.”
