QUAPAW, Okla. — A man was taken into custody in Quapaw Thursday morning following a burglary call.
Marshals with the Quapaw Nation Marshal Services heard of a burglary in progress near Hwy 137 & 40 Rd. in Quapaw involving one man.
Before their arrival to the address, new information revealed the man had ditched his truck at scene and walked toward a different neighborhood carrying a backpack.
A brief search in the area by Marshals ultimately located the suspect who subsequently gave authorities a fake name. However, a witness was able to ID the man a short while later as 40-year-old Amos Johnson*.
Johnson faces burglary related charges, false personation, and has outstanding warrants. He has since been placed in County Jail.
*Editor’s note: The name of the suspect involved was not released by QNMS originally and has since been added (June 10th).
