Footage leads to man’s arrest

Tahlequah police arrested a man Wednesday afternoon for vandalizing surveillance cameras at that city’s skate park.

The cameras were damaged last Saturday, but Tahlequah Police Sgt. Jason Girdner said he came across 20-year-old Keeton S. Moore Wednesday afternoon near Choctaw and Park Avenue. Girdner said Moore looked similar to the suspect who had damaged the city’s cameras, so he stopped the man.

Moore was shown pho- tos the police department had been provided from the city’s footage, and allegedly admitted he was the man in the footage. He reportedly told police he threw a skate-board at the cameras but didn’t realize he damaged them. He also allegedly said he was drunk when he threw the skateboard. According to Girdner, Moore was arrested and found to be in possession of a glass pipe, which he claimed was used to smoke incense.

Girdner took possession of the pipe, but booked Moore on the charge of destruction of private property, according to the arrest report.
