Tonkawa Police debunk rumors

The Associated Press - February 2, 2017 12:32 pm

The Tonkawa Police Department would like to address rumors on social media regarding an, “armed man loose in Tonkawa.”

Tonkawa police have not received any call to report an armed person, at large, in Tonkawa, the departrment posted on its Facebook page this morning.

Shortly after 8 a.m. this morning, Tonkawa police officers responded to a call for service with regards to a suspicious individual on private property, the Facebook page reports. Other calls to Tonkawa police advised that the suspicious person was seen in the front and back yards of residences.

Tonkawa police officers responded and made contact with the individual. Police arrested 31-year-old Tonkawa resident David R. Martin on outstanding Kay County warrants.

The Tonkawa Police Department is NOT searching for an armed man at this time and statements, expressed earlier on social media, are false.

Tonkawa police appreciate the community’s awareness and continued support. Remember, if you see a crime committed, have information on past crimes, or need assistance, please call the Tonkawa Police Department at (580) 628-2516.
