OAKLAND – Oakland Police Chief Russ Smith reported multiple arrests made by his department in November including a charge on a Charleston man for threatening a police officer.
Ray Slaughter of Charleston was charged with simple assault on a police officer after he threatened the chief on the phone. Smith said the threat stems from frustration about an ongoing investigation about a break-in at Slaughter’s business in Oakland back in May.
“We have been searching for leads on this case,” Smith said about the break-in. “He made the threat against me on the phone, he said he was going to blow my guts out when he sees me,” Smith added.
Other arrests included:
Jarvious House of Oakland was arrested and charged with obstructing the road way and possession of paraphernalia on Nov. 9. House was arrested just after 7 a.m. after he was obstructing the road with his vehicle. Smith said marijuana was found during a pat down.
Robert Anderson of Oakland was charged with obstructing the road way and possession of a controlled substance on Nov. 8. Smith reported he responded to a call at the rental cabins just off of I-55 and found residue of crystal meth in Anderson’s possession. Shauna Bardo of Oakland was also arrested during the incident after the chief questioned her upon learning that Anderson had just left her house. Bardo is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after marijuana and crystal meth were discovered in her possession.
Jennifer Taylor of Oakland was charged with malicious mischief, expired driver’s license and simple assault on Nov. 9.
William Winemiller of Tutwiler was charged with improper passing on Nov. 7.
Antonio Egleston of Oakland was charged with careless driving after he was squealing tires. He was also cited for suspended driver’s license, possession of marijuana and no proof of liability insurance on Nov. 4.
Smith also said a burglary on Spruce Street on Nov. 11 remains under investigation. Entry was forced through a door in the rear of the home and two 32-inch televisions, Samsung and Toshiba brands, and a 12 gauge shotgun were reported missing. Smith urged anyone with information about the incident to contact his department at (662) 623-8668. The Yalobusha County Crime Stoppers will also pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction for this and other crimes in the county.
