Guthrie Police arrested three people earlier this month while serving an arrest warrant. One of the suspects tried his best to escape by kicking and swinging at police officers.
Officers went to the 1500 block of W. Warner on Dec. 7 to serve three outstanding warrants for Cade Anderson, 20. Det. Mark Bruning stated having prior knowledge of Anderson’s involvement with stolen property, guns and use of illegal drugs.
Upon approaching the home, officers could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the home.
According to the police report, Bruning knocked on the door twice and was asked from a male voice who was at the door. A short time later, a female, Ireland Sheehan, answered the door and told officers they could search for the male.
Bruning stated the house was full of marijuana smoke and located two small children sleeping in a room.
An officer raised a bed up and located Anderson hiding under the bed. He was taken into custody.
Moments later while outside the home, officers spotted a male subject, who appeared to be nervous when being questioned by the officers.
The subject, later identified as Steven Golladay, 35, was found backing up and reaching in his pockets, according to the report. As Golladay was being patted down for weapons, he turned away from the officers, who then took him down to the ground.
Once of the ground, Golladay allegedly began striking the officers by kicking his legs and swinging his arms. Pepper spray was deployed on Golladay, but continued to fight. Another round of pepper spray was deployed, but had no physical effect on the subject. Additional police officers were requested.
Approximately 13 minutes after encountering Golladay, who has several felony convictions for stolen property and possession of methamphetamine, was placed in handcuffs and in custody. However, leg cuffs were placed on Golladay as he continued to kick, according to the police report.
Afterwards, one officer discovered several broken blood vessels in his right hand, while the officer suffered a laceration to his finger.
During the scuffle, a brown zipper bag containing three syringes and meth fell from Golladay. Officers later found more meth in Golladay’s pocket.
Later Golladay admitted he went to the residence to confront Anderson about drugs being left at his residence.
Once officers went back into they found the residence to be in total “disarray.”
Along with meth and marijuana, officers said they found a razor blade within reach of the children.
The two children (18 months and seven months) were released to family members.
Golladay was charged with unlawful possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and two charges of assault and battery on police officer. Bond was set at $40,000.
Anderson was booked on neglect of child, obstructing an officer, unlawful possession of controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine and marijuana) and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. A $30,000 bond was set.
Sheehan was also charged with neglect of child, unlawful possession of controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine and marijuana) and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. She was given a $10,000 bond.
All three are expected to be back in court on Dec. 20.
