Gift-card Car Buy Attempt leads to Arrest

A California man is being held without bond in the Sequoyah County Jail after Sallisaw police found him in possession of alleged illegal drugs, a loaded firearm and stolen or fraudulent gift cards.

Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin reported Griffin Taylor gave officers a fake ID when he was arrested Thursday, but his fingerprints led to his true identity after his arrest.

Franklin reported, “On April 14 Sallisaw police officers responded to the Auto Finders car lot on East Cherokee Street in Sallisaw in reference to a suspicious male trying to purchase a vehicle with a large amount of gift cards. When officers arrived they made contact with a male subject who had a handful of gift cards. The subject was taken into custody and a search of his back pack revealed trafficking weight of black tar heroin along with methamphetamine, a loaded firearm, and multiple gifts cards believed to be stolen or fraudulent.”
