Vehicle in Sallisaw Hit-and-Run Allegedly Used in Roland Robbery

Suspects and vehicle believed to be involved in a hit-and-run accident
in Sallisaw as well as a robbery in Roland.

A hit-and-run accident at Cherry and Oak streets in Sallisaw on Aug. 10 led Sallisaw police to a suspected getaway vehicle reportedly used in a Roland robbery the next day.

The Sallisaw Police Department was called to the location of the accident and discovered the vehicle, a gray Nissan Altima with an Oklahoma tag. The suspect vehicle has obviously chipped paint on the front bumper, police said, and the tag on the car was reported stolen and didn’t belong to that vehicle.

A short time later, a Roland police investigator alerted Sallisaw police that the vehicle fit the description of one used in an Aug. 11 robbery at the Cherokee Nation Casino in Roland.

If you have any information about who these individuals are, please contact Sallisaw Police Lt. Detective John Owens at (918) 775-4141 or Roland Police Investigator Chris Waters at (918) 427-3252.
