Woman Jailed on Contraband Complaint
By Staff Reports
Jan 13, 1996
Deputies arrested a woman attempting to sneak tobacco, super glue,
dice and vodka among other things into the Tulsa Jail.
Jayne Ann BigGoose, 39, of Tulsa was arrested on a complaint
of bringing contraband into a jail Thursday.
At about 4:15 p.m. deputies received an anonymous phone call
from someone who said "a female is going to try to smuggle some
contraband in the Tulsa County Jail."
BigGoose was arrested when a deputy, while watching the house
security cameras, noticed a woman carrying a white package on the
north side of the courthouse.
She was attempting to tie the contraband to rope that
appeared to be dangling from the eighth floor when she was arrested
by sheriff's deputies
The contraband was sewn in six tube socks containing: seven
packages of tobacco rolled in plastic wrap, five lighters, seven
packages of wrapping papers, two tubes of super glue, three red
pens, two rolling dice, two water bottles field with vodka, one
immersion electrical heater and two razor heaters.
At least once a week someone attempts to smuggle contraband
into jail, Undersheriff Bill Thompson said.
"We have had a greater problem since we went to a nonsmoking
jail. Our biggest problem is tobacco. People try and bring that in
here all of the time," Thompson said.
Thompson said most of the smugglers are caught on security
"Of course our greatest concern is weapons," Thompson said.
"But those cigarettes are a much bigger problem than drugs."
Bicyclist Injured in Collision With Van
A 28-year-old man was listed in critical condition Friday after he
collided with a van while riding a bicycle.
Ivan Karnes was riding his bike west on 34th Street about
9:45 a.m. when he turned north on Garnett Road, police said. Karnes
swerved to avoid a car and collided with a southbound van, said
Cpl. David Edwards.
"The driver of the van had no chance to stop before hitting
him," Edwards said.
Karnes and the bicycle were carried about 15 feet before the
bicycle came to rest under front wheels of the van. Karnes fell off
the front of the van when it stopped.
No citations were issued. "It does not appear the driver of
the van did anything wrong," Edwards said.
