Woman arrested in library for multiple outstanding warrants

A call to campus police from the OCCC library resulted in an arrest Sept. 5.

Monica Carlisle, library circulation assistant, told Officer Gordon Nelson books had been returned with the barcodes and property labels removed. The property stamp on the books also had been partially obscured.

Carlisle directed Nelson to the woman who had returned the books.

Vivian Langston, a visitor on campus, told Nelson she had checked out the books for her daughter.

Nelson issued Langston a notice to leave OCCC, prohibiting her from returning to the campus for six months.

Nelson also discovered the woman had outstanding warrants in Oklahoma City and Cleveland County for assault and battery and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Langston was placed under arrest and transported to the Cleveland County Jail.

Also on Sept. 5, Officer Tim Harris was called to parking Lot B in response to a student who reported his car had been struck. Jackson Duncan T. McKinnon reported to officer Harris that while he was in class, a vehicle had struck his Chevrolet Cavalier.

According to a report filed by Harris, there was damage on the driver’s side rear fender.

Surveillance video from the area shows a vehicle parked on the driver’s side of McKinnon’s car was parked there when McKinnon arrived, and was still there when McKinnon was returned after class.

In the report, Harris said, that indicated the damage to McKinnon’s car had occurred somewhere off the OCCC campus.
