Police: 9 arrested from Arcadia Lake party

EDMOND — Eight adults and a juvenile were arrested during a recent party at Arcadia Lake where alcohol and pot were found, police said.

At about 12:45 a.m. on Aug. 13, Edmond Police Officer Branden Baxley arrived at 7200 E. Second St., Arcadia Lake’s Edmond Park, in reference to persons being loud and drinking near a playground, according to an incident report filed by Baxley.

Hearing noise, the officer went to campsite No. 2, where he saw six to eight people sitting at the picnic table, police said. After seeing glass beer bottles and beer cans he asked if anyone was older than age 21; no one said they were, police said. The officer stated that he saw opened and unopened alcoholic beverages near each person at the picnic table.

While speaking with them, Baxley noticed a male attempting to use his hands to cover something on a blue binder, police said. He walked to that person and saw a green leafy substance he believed was marijuana on the binder, police said.

Baxley then noticed an orange “bong” under the picnic table near the feet of the male and a second male, police said. Beside the bong was a clear plastic baggy containing more marijuana and a silver and copper colored smoking pipe with marijuana residue, police said.

No one claimed ownership of either the pot or the drug paraphernalia, police said.

Baxley requested more officers and Sgt. Derick Pickard and Officer Page Hussey arrived shortly thereafter, police said. Hussey found a plastic baggy containing marijuana about 10-15 feet away from the picnic table, indicating that someone had tossed it upon Baxley’s arrival, police said.

Baxley asked who owned the marijuana and drug paraphernalia a second time; no one claimed ownership, police said. He advised them that if the owner did not claim ownership of the items they would all be arrested, police said. Again, no one claimed ownership, Baxley stated in his report.

A female said she had been drinking beer but the marijuana was not hers, police said.

Hussey said he found a small amount of marijuana in a tent alongside a plastic baggy containing a blue pipe and other paraphernalia. He said the items were in plain view.

At about 1:30 a.m., according to the police report, the following individuals were arrested:

• Peter Johnathan Ramos, 20, of Edmond,

• Nicolas Ryan Bouseman, 18, of Oklahoma City,

• Amy Elizabeth Countryman, 18, of Edmond,

• Zoey Nichole Fryhover, 18, of Edmond,

• Sarah Jane Myers, 18, of Edmond,

• Brian Edward Sheetz, 18, of Edmond,

• Parker Stephen Nelson, 18, of Edmond,

• A 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old Santa Fe High School student.

The district attorney will determine if formal charges will be filed against these suspects. If they are filed, individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. |

  • MS_injection well.jpg Agency clarifies earthquake-related misinformation

    A state agency says misinformation related to the debate about the cause of more earthquakes across Central Oklahoma includes oil well types, well numbers and injection pressure.
    The Prague sequence of 2011 along the Wilzetta Fault zone included a significant foreshock, a main shock of magnitude 5.7 and numerous aftershocks. It has been suggested that this sequence represents tremors triggered by fluid injection.
    More recently, earthquakes have been recorded in the vicinity of Jones, Arcadia Lake, Edmond, Guthrie, Langston and Crescent. Regulators and scientists are working together to better understand what’s causing all the shaking.

    “We know all saturated fats are not created equally, but there’s no evidence that coconut oil is better or healthier than other vegetable oils,” said Janice Hermann, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension nutrition specialist.

  • Dr. Fielding’s variance denied by close vote

    Reverse-angle parking will continue at the 13 N. University Drive office of Dr. Brad Fielding. The Edmond City Council rejected a variance request by the local optometrist to end the city’s pilot project in front of his medical facility.
    Councilman Nick Massey and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell supported Fielding’s variance request that was dismissed in a 3-2 vote.
    Four parking lines were striped late last year at Fielding’s business after the city opened new bicycle lanes along University. The city cites the safety for bicyclists and motorists who traditionally depart while backing into traffic as the main reasons for introducing reverse-angle parking.

Do you agree with a state budget proposal that takes some funds away from road and bridge projects to ramp up education funding by $29.85 million per year until schools are receiving $600 million more a year than they are now? In years in which 1 percent revenue growth does not occur in the general fund, the transfer would not take place.
