Kris Ledford on Suicide Watch

A Muskogee crime scene investigator has been jailed after police seized dozens of guns from his home.

Muskogee Police Chief Rex Eskridge says 30-year-old Kris Ledford is being held without bond at an undisclosed location until his first court appearance Monday. Eskridge says Ledford is being kept away from other prisoners and he is on suicide watch.

Police are working to determine the origin of the 60 to 70 guns that were found at Ledford's home in Broken Arrow.

Deputy Police Chief Johnny Teehee says investigators are trying to find out whether the guns, police scanners and silencers were embezzled from the police department.

Ledford was arrested Thursday on a warrant for a misdemeanor charge of impersonating a Tulsa police officer.

Former Sheriff Arrested For DUI


A former Delaware County Sheriff is in trouble again.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say Lenden Woodruff has been arrested for driving under the influence, carrying a firearm under the influence, transporting an open container of beer and not wearing a seat belt.

Woodruff resigned in 2004 after being arrested on similar charges.

Woodruff later pleaded guilty to DUI and carrying an open container.
