Facebook tip leads to arrest of fugitives in Stilwell

Ponca City Now - July 24, 2018 11:17 am

OKLAHOMA CITY – A tip the Oklahoma Department of Corrections received over Facebook led to the arrest Monday of two fugitives.

The tip about a stolen vehicle led to Stilwell Police finding Avery Flores around 7 p.m. outside the 59 Fuel and Feed gas station.

Found with him was Lynzie Hummingbird, a Northeastern District of Probation and Parole absconder who was known to be with him.

Flores walked away Dec. 21 from Tulsa Transitional Center, where he was serving time on a felony drug possession conviction.

When she absconded, Hummingbird was serving a suspended sentence for a Cherokee County conviction of first-degree robbery.

The two were booked Monday at the Adair County Detention Center.

In addition to an escape charge, Flores was booked on complaints of resisting arrest, and assault and battery on a police officer.

Hummingbird was booked on a complaint of harboring a fugitive and multiple felony warrants.
