Armed robbery reported on U.S. 81 north of Enid

ENID, OK — Garfield County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two vehicles involved in a reported armed robbery north of Enid this morning.

One vehicle is a red compact car with a doughnut tire on the left rear wheel and damage or complete loss to its rear bumper. It is being driven by a white woman in her 40s, about 5-foot, 2-inches tall with blonde hair.

The second vehicle is described a white Chevy flat-bed dually pickup with a winch or vehicle crane mounted to the rear edge of the bed. It is being driven by a white male in his 50s, about 6-foot, 3-inches tall with a bushy beard.

Sheriff Jerry Niles said a man stopped to change a tire on the red vehicle in about the 12,000 block of U.S. 81 when the white pickup pulled up from behind.

The driver of the white vehicle ordered the man into the bar ditch at gunpoint with a semi-automatic pistol and the man and woman ransacked his vehicle, Niles said.

The two vehicle fled the scene, first to the south and then to the east, Niles said. Deputies are currently searching the county for the two vehicles.

Anyone who sees either vehicle should call 911, contact the sheriff’s office at 237-0244 or contact their local law enforcement agency.

Those with information may also contact Garfield County Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233.
