Local law enforcement is on the lookout for a 32-year-old Indian male who led officers on a chase Wednesday morning.
Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin said Cecil Sixkiller is wanted for outstanding warrants out of Sequoyah County. He is described as an Indian male, with black hair and brown eyes. He is five feet, eight inches tall and weighs about 230 pounds.
Franklin said at about 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, Sallisaw police officers tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation near the intersection of Kerr Boulevard and Ruth Street. The driver did not stop when the officer turned on his lights and siren, and the vehicle fled south of Sallisaw, reaching speeds greater than 80 miles per hour.
The driver slowed near the U.S. Highway 59 and Wild Horse Mountain Road intersection and a passenger jumped out of the vehicle.
The driver then drove east on Wild Horse Mountain Road, and continued to flee until running out of road at a dead end. At that point he got out of the vehicle and ran into the woods.
A search was conducted but officers and sheriff’s deputies were unable to locate the driver. However, the driver is identified as Cecil Sixkiller. Anyone with any information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Sallisaw Police Department or the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office.
