By John Dobberstein, Editor
The Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office says Flock camera technology helped deputies locate a stolen vehicle.
Deputies were sent to the Toppers area Sept. 8 at about 4:58 a.m. after a Flock ALPR camera notification of a stolen vehicle, a 2003 Dodge Neon from the Mayes County area.
Deputies proceeded to the area in an attempt to locate the stolen vehicle and notified the Wagoner Police Department to help with the search.
The vehicle was located in the area of South 319 Road and East 723 Road in Toppers, after a deputy saw the vehicle pass him.
Deputies took Joseph Morrison into custody without incident. A passenger in the vehicle was questioned and released at the scene
Deputies transported Joseph Morrison to the Wagoner County Detention Center where he was charged with receiving, possessing or concealing stolen property.
“This case is yet another example of how technology serves as a force magnifier for the Sheriff's Office,” said Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliott. “Flock cameras give us the ability to monitor more of the county with less deputies, thus saving taxpayer dollars. Flock cameras are networked all over the state and nation which enhances our ability to keep Wagoner County safe.”
