Area man faces kidnapping charges


Free-Lance Editor


Henryetta Police Department responded to a distress call at Rocky’s Grand Central Station on West Main Street about a possible kidnapping on the morning of May 1.

The female victim, a Henryetta resident, alleged that after she exited Rocky’s and returned to her unlocked car, an unknown male was hiding in her car. She alleged the suspect grabbed her and told her to take him to another location in town, but she refused. Then, as she told officers, the suspect jumped out of her car and took off running.

Police officers were able to track the suspect to a residence in the 1100 block of West Division where they took him into custody. The suspect was later identified to be 23-year-old Henryetta-area resident Dackota Lee Scott Dooley.

After his arrest, Dooley was then transported to the Okmulgee County Jail where he faces a Felony charge of Kidnapping. Okmulgee County District Court set his bond at $100,000.

According to Oklahoma Statutes for the charge of Kidnapping, Dooley could face a term of imprisonment up to 20 years with a term of post-imprisonment supervision.

Dooley’s initial court appearance is scheduled for Thursday, May 24 at 2 p.m. before Okmulgee County Special District Judge Pandee Ramirez.

“Always be aware of your surroundings. As always in Henryetta, we have good witnesses and that led us to track where the suspect went. He was in custody within a few minutes after the incident occurred,” Police Chief Steve Norman said.

Henryetta officers who made the arrest were Sgt. Brandon England, Lt. Matthew Duke and Sgt. Joey Cantrell. Also responding to the call was Henryetta Police Chief Steve Norman.
