Kay County District Court Judge Bandy, in a probable cause hearing Tuesday, found probable cause to hold Everardo Rodriguez, 23, on charges related to a pursuit and stand-off that started Sunday night and continued through the early morning hours Monday.
Bond was set in the amount of $1 million.
Kay County Sheriff Steve Kelley sent several complaints to the Kay County District Attorney’s office Tuesday morning, requesting charges be filed against Rodriguez.
Kelley said his office is seeking charges for obstruction of a police officer, attempting to escape, kidnapping, second-degree burglary, and first-degree burglary.
Kelley said Monday morning Rodriguez is a suspect in a pharmacy robbery in Yale, Oklahoma, in Payne County. He also has a Kay County warrant for failure to pay and is wanted for questioning in connection with robberies in Kay County.
Kay County deputies tried to initiate a felony stop on Rodriguez at 14th Street and Hartford Avenue Sunday night, but Rodriguez failed to stop and continued to Pioneer Apartments, 715 Monument Road, where he entered an apartment where he knew the residents.
After a stand-off that lasted several hours, the Ponca City Tactical Team subdued Rodriguez and the Kay County Sheriff’s Office took him into custody.
Sheriff Kelley said Payne County has set a bond of $200,000 for Rodriguez in connection with the Yale pharmacy robbery. He remains in custody at the Kay County Detention Center.
