As we approach the weekend and more rain chances coming, please remember to pay attention to road conditions. If there is water crossing the road it is always recommended to turn around and find an alternative route to travel. If road signs/barricades are up, please don’t drive around them. They are there for your protection as well. If you see a problematic area that needs attention please call our dispatch center at (405) 375-4242 and let them know where the road is located at and what the conditions are. They will contact the appropriate personnel to take care of it.

Please share: the water resources board is at falcon lake in far NE Canadian county looking at the dam. There is a high potential of the dam breaching. They are now requesting Waterloo Road to be shut down and everyone downstream be notified. If you know of someone living north of Falcon Lake or in the area please let them know. We will have deputies in the area soon to go door to door as well. This affects far SE Kingfisher County. UPDATE: 9:17 pm. The water resources board has reported that the dam is deteriorating quickly. It is strongly recommended that the first 4-5 homes directly north of Waterloo evacuate. This will be next to the bridge and the east side of N 2976 road. UPDATE 8-16-18 8:45am The dam breached shortly after 12am. Fortunately it held fairly well and was able to contain the outflow of water to a slower pace than anticipated. Crews will be out surveying the area today to determine if any damage was done.

Our office has been informed of a road closure in the eastern part of the county due to a bridge collapse over the weekend. The road will be 720 between 2970 & 2960.

It is unknown at this time how long the road will be closed for repairs to be made.

On Monday August 13, 2018 Newfield Exploration will begin having increased truck activity south of the Lomega High School.

They will be diverting their trucks to not go past the high school. To keep children and families safe, it is suggested that they try and approach the high school from the north. We will have a deputy in the area as much as possible in the mornings and afternoons when traffic is increased for the start and finish of school. This project is expected to take up to 40 days. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call.

This is a secret shopper scam. We cannot express enough to our public how many of these scams are going on. Please do not ever deposit a check into your account unless you are 100% sure if where the funds came from. This alert citizen saved herself a lot of money and time by being vigilant in reviewing this paperwork.

The scam artists are calling in full force to residents of our county again. Be weary of people you don't know offering you money or services for things you didn't ask for. SCAM #1 You have just won the Publishers Clearing House Jackpot. All you have to do is give them personal information about yourself and arrange a meeting date and time. Then there is the processing fee that you will have to pay for. Note: one citizen played along long enough to get the caller to ask if she would just give him some money. Lol SCAM #2 Your computer is very badly infected. You need to turn it on and follow the callers directions to fix it immediately. By the end of the call, the caller has enough information to access what credit cards and bank accounts you have. They tend to get upset when you begin asking questions about the location of your computer and what disease it has contracted. When you ask how your computer contacted them and why they didn't fix the problem then they have no answer. The common rule of thumb is listen to that little voice of reason in your head. If it is telling you that this doesn't sound right, it isn't.

It would appear that there is a new phishing scam going aroud Facebook. The scam is masking itself as sprint and is insisting that you have taken out an account/lease. They will have your name and email address along with any other publicly availiable information connected to your account. This scam has the ability to access your friends list and private information. Please use extreme caution on the internet. Use the security settings in your account and do not open links you are not sure of. Please report any instances of this scam to the Kingfisher County Sheriff's Dept.

Earlier today our office received a possible sighting of Michael Vance. Undersheriff Bryon Blankenship was able to locate the vehicle and determine the occupant was in our county doing legitimate business.

We would like to say thank you to LifeWay Church for the gift basket they dropped off today. During this time of uncertainty in our nation, it is always comforting to know that we live in an area where public service is appreciated.

The two occupants of this vehicle are from the states of Washington and Oregon. They claim to be selling meat for an Oklahoma City company using the chest freezer in the back of the pickup. They have been caught looking in the windows of homes in our county. When confronted by the homeowners their claims of legitimate business diminish. If you see these individuals or this vehicle please call our office.
