declaration to Perkins pawn shop
By Patti Weaver Journal Correspondent
A Cushing woman has been ordered to appear in court on Jan. 22 on a felony charge of making a false declaration of ownership of a stolen laptop computer to a Perkins pawn shop.
Deja Lea Wilson, 20, who told a Perkins police officer that she didn't know the computer was stolen, could be given a five-year prison term if convicted, court records show.
Perkins Police Investigator Charles Danker wrote in an affidavit that an Agra man contacted him in November to report that the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department told him his stolen property was at the 33 Pawn shop in Perkins.
"The name on the pawn ticket for the person who pawned the stolen property was Deja Wilson and gave an address out of Cushing," the affidavit alleged.
When the Perkins investigator talked to Wilson, she said "a guy they were giving a ride to wanted her boyfriend to pawn a computer for him," the affidavit alleged.
She said that her boyfriend "didn't want to put his shoes back on and go in the pawn shop so he asked her to pawn the computer," the affidavit alleged.
"Deja stated she refused to pawn the computer because they didn't know anything about the computer if it was stolen or not," the affidavit said.
She said that her boyfriend "reassured her that the computer belonged to the male subject riding with them, and it wasn't stolen," the affidavit said.
"I asked who brought the computer and Deja stated Derek and she couldn't remember his last name," the affidavit said.
She said that he brought the computer to her boyfriend when they drove between Agra and Chandler to pick him up, the affidavit alleged.
"Deja stated she didn't know the computer was stolen -- everybody else knew but her," the affidavit said. "Deja received $80 for the pawn of the computer," the affidavit said.
A friend of Wilson "stated that Derek informed him that Deja knew the computer was stolen," the affidavit alleged. He claimed that "Derek stole the computer and a chainsaw from his foster dad," the affidavit alleged.
The friend "stated he would have Derek come back to Oklahoma from Texas and take responsibility for him stealing the computer," in Lincoln County, the affidavit allege
