Atoka Police Sergeant Jimmy Taylor received a call about a theft from the Love’s Truck Stop on Saturday, August 22, 2020.
Sergeant Taylor was advised the suspect was in a white Dodge Charger and had stolen a 30 pack of beer.
While patrolling on West Liberty Road, Sergeant Taylor located the vehicle, conducting a traffic stop. He made contact with the driver and asked him to exit the vehicle.
The driver was advised about the reason for the traffic stop. He told Sergeant Taylor he was suspicious when the back passenger, Kaine Khalil Walker, 27, of Coalgate, was trying to hide the beer under the seat at the time of the stop.
The driver claimed Walker was not in the store for very long when he returned to the vehicle, laughing, with a 30 pack of Budlight beer. Walker was said to be extremely intoxicated.
Sergeant Taylor spoke to Walker who claimed he paid for the beer, but the store clerk did not give him a receipt. He told the officer he paid $22 or $23 dollars for the beer.
Walker had slurred speech, red bloodshot eyes, and a strong odor on his person. He admitted to drinking alcoholic beverage.
Atoka Police Officer Jedediah Griffith arrived at the Love’s Truckstop to speak to the clerk. He was able to positively identify Walker as the suspect stealing the 30 pack of beer on the store’s security footage.
Walker was placed under arrest and set in the back seat of the patrol unit. The beer was seized for evidence.
While en route to the Atoka County Jail, Walker became belligerent, yelling curse words, and claiming he had a receipt in his pocket.
When Walker arrived at the jail, he continued to yell and curse at the officers. He got close to Atoka Police Officer Cody Poe’s face, yelling obscenities and putting saliva on the officer’s face.
Walker was asked to step back and not spit on Officer Poe. Walker was belligerent towards Officer Poe two more times while he was being processed. On both occasions saliva ended up on the officer’s cheek.
There was no receipt found on Walker’s person. The cost of the beer was $25.99.
Walker is charged with petit larceny (misdemeanor), and public intoxication (misdemeanor).
