Stillwater Police Arrest Man After Attempted Scam; Other Victims Possible

Stillwater Police Department - April 6, 2022 3:19 pm

Yesterday, the Stillwater Police Department arrested an individual who attempted to scam an elderly Stillwater couple. The male suspect was in the course of defrauding the couple of $12k. He told the couple the funds would be used for bond money to free a relative from jail in Florida. Fortunately, this alert couple was suspicious and contacted the police. Officers arrived to find the suspect at the couple’s residence posing as a “bond courier.” This is an ongoing investigation and evidence has led Stillwater PD to believe there are other victims in our city and/or in surrounding areas. If you have been the victim of this type of scam recently in Stillwater or know someone who has, contact the Stillwater Police immediately at 405-372-4171 or in Ponca City, call the Ponca City Police department at 580-767-0370.
