Sallisaw man charged with bringing contraband into jail
Thursday, December 1, 2022 - A Sallisaw man was arrested Nov. 16 and charged with bringing contraband into the Sallisaw jail.
Albert Kilpatrick, 62, could face up to five years, a fine of up to $1,000 or both imprisonment and a fine.
On Nov. 11, two Sallisaw police officers were notified by a police lieutenant that Kilpatrick was possibly at a Sallisaw apartment complex.
On their way to the apartments, dispatch confirmed that Kilpatrick had an outstanding warrant.
While attempting to subdue the man, Kilpatrick had to be told several times to keep his hands out of his pockets. He was subsequently arrested and transported to the Sallisaw Police Department.
Once at the jail, Kilpatrick was asked numerous times if he had anything illegal on his person, to which he said “no.” He also denied having anything illicit on him while speaking with the jailer.
According to the police report, officers had observed Kilpatrick fidgeting in the back seat of his car, and they presumed he had hidden something on his person, but Kilpatrick denied having anything.
When the booking officer searched Kilpatrick, however, they discovered two clear baggies with one containing a crystalline substance, as well as a substance that later tested positive for methamphetamine.
