An arrest warrant was issued Dec. 27 for a Sallisaw woman who allegedly stole car keys and a wallet from a woman in Muldrow.
Amber Elizabeth Cox, 41, is facing a grand larceny charge in the case, records reveal.
On Dec. 14, a Muldrow police officer was dispatched to East Shawntel Smith Drive. When the officer arrived, he spoke with Drew Emily Cantwell, who told him Cox had reached into her car with force while Cantwell was occupying it and took her car keys from her hand. Cox also reportedly took a wallet from Cantwell that contained about $300 in cash and gift cards. She then fled from the scene, leaving Cantwell stranded.
On Dec. 17, a different officer took another call regarding the two women. Cox told the officer the wallet was in the dumpster at Cantwell’s store. A search of the trash bin led to the discovery of the wallet, which still contained Cantwell’s identification cards, but the cash and gift cards were gone. Cox told the officer Cantwell’s father had taken the cash.
