Friday, November 11, 2022 - A felony arrest warrant was issued Nov. 3 for a Sallisaw woman charged with larceny of an automobile.
On Oct. 20, a Sallisaw police officer responded to a Sallisaw residence in reference to the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
When the officer arrived he spoke with Karen Powell, who explained that she had let a female known as “Gina” borrow her vehicle earlier that day and it had not been returned. “Gina” was later identified as 26 -year-old Regina Kaderly.
Powell said Gina contacted her and asked if she could borrow the vehicle to go to Fort Smith so she could have visitation with her children. Powell stated that she gave Gina permission to take the car and they had an agreement that Gina would return the car by 7 p.m. that day. Powell said her vehicle was a gold or beige 4-door Buick sedan with a broken windshield and a defective tag light with an Oklahoma license plate.
The officer was able to get Kaderly’s address from Powell.
When the officer went to Kaderly’s home, he spoke with a male, who said she had stayed at the house for a couple of nights, but when he returned from work Oct. 20, her bags and clothing were all gone. He said the only way he could contact Kaderly was through Facebook Messenger.
The officer asked the man to send Kaderly a message asking her to return the car. He then returned to speak to Powell, who said she wanted to press charges.
Kaderly could face up to five years in the Department of Corrections, a fine that is equal to three times the value of the property that was stolen or by a fine, imprisonment and restitution.
