WAGONER CO. — A Wagoner County resident has a new set of tires and wheels thanks to a Wagoner County Deputy, Coweta Police Officer and Coweta FOP.
In mid April, Wagoner County Deputy B. Sieg responded to call about a larceny from a car. When Deputy Sieg arrive he met the victim and found her 2002 PT Cruiser sitting on blocks at her home.
Deputy Sieg took the report about the wheels of the victim's car being taken, and over the next week, both Wagoner deputies and Coweta police kept an eye out for the distanct PT Crusier wheels.
After the week had gone by without any luck, authorities learned that the victim had recently moved to Coweta to take care of her father, who later passed away. They found that the victim was now having to rely on family to transport her around due to the larceny of her wheels and tires. Then, Coweta PD Officer Nick Winters called Deputy Sieg saying that the Coweta FOP was interested in buying the victim new tires and wheels for her car.
Both Deputy Sieg and Officer Winters decided they wanted to get the victim tires. The victim was notified to ensure Deputy Sieg and Officer Winters got the victim the tires and wheels she desired. After she was notified, her son, Joshua Hall, contacted Deputy Sieg and thanked him, and informed him that family had come together and collected money to buy wheels and tires at the Robertson's Tire in Coweta.
On Tuesday, April 21, Sheriff Elliott, Joshua Hall (victim's son), Deputy Sieg and Officer Winters (on behalf of Coweta FOP) met up at the Robertson's Tire to get the victim new wheels, tires and locking lug nuts. Also, Deputy Sieg provided the victim with some cloth face masks for her and her family to ensure their safety during the coronavirus pandemic.
Then, Sheriff Chris Elliott, Detective Chuck McCollough, Officer Winters, Officer Barnett, Coweta Assistant Chief Peterson, and Deputy Sieg all installed the wheels and tires on victim's PT Cruiser.
“We as Officers and Deputies were incredibly happy to extend our blessing to this family in their time of need and show them that we care about the members of our community. The victim has been retired and she does not have the means to recover from such a loss without much sacrifice. It is our honor to provide this little bit of help to make sure she can once again have her much needed transportation at her disposal,” says Wagoner County Deputy Bill Sieg.
Joshua Hall, the victim and their family members expressed their excitement and appreciation to the Coweta Police Department and the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office for helping to take care of the victim.
