Cordell Police Report Vehicle Break Ins

Within the last few days, several reports have been turned in to the Cordell Police Department of thefts, mostly occurring in the north, south and east parts of town.

According to Cordell Police Chief Brandon Rogers, the thief, or thieves, have mostly targeted vehicles.

In the most recent incident, reported on Tuesday, December 27, three vehicles at one residence were entered and the contents gone through.

“It is interesting that the contents of the vehicles are gone through, but items of value are being left in the vehicle,” Rogers said.

He thinks it is possible the would-be thief or thieves may be looking for prescription medicine which had been left in the vehicle.

“It is imperative that, until we catch whoever is getting into these cars, that residents lock their vehicles at all times,” Rogers said

4-H Collecting Donations For Ronald McDonald House

Washita County 4-H members are beginning to raise money for the 2017 Oklahoma 4-H Kids Helping Kids campaign.

While the campaign is a fundraiser for local 4-H clubs across the state, it is also a community service project for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Oklahoma City, a non-profit that provides a “home away from home” for families with seriously ill or injured children who are being treated in the Oklahoma City area.

“The Kids Helping Kids campaign is more than just your average fundraiser,” said Kristin Knight, Oklahoma 4-H marketing coordinator. “It’s a way for all of us to help a charity that does so much for Oklahoma families as well as support local 4-H programs.”
