Oklahoma City police arrested a fugitive they found hiding in a wall, along with two people they say were helping her hide.
Regina Marie Dotson, 41, was arrested on four Oklahoma County warrants — one for failure to appear and three for violation of a suspended sentence — and one Cleveland County warrant for violation of a suspended sentence.
Elizabeth Katherine Williams, 42, and Christopher Aaron Campbell, 31, were arrested on complaints of harboring a fugitive. Campbell also was arrested on a Monroe County, Ind., warrant for failure to pay child support.
Police officers went to 2316 NW 112 Terrace about 11:40 a.m. Sunday to serve multiple felony warrants against Dotson, according to a report released Thursday.
The homeowner rents out the rooms to individuals, police said. A resident told police Dotson lived in a room on the second floor.
Officers searched the unlocked rooms in the residence and broke down a locked door after they heard noises coming from a bedroom. They didn't find Dotson in the bedroom or in the backyard, according to the report.
Officers then went to Cherry Hill Apartments, where Dotson worked, and talked to her boyfriend, Campbell.
When they returned to the residence, Williams told them Campbell called to tell her the officers were coming back to the house and she needed to warn Dotson, according to the report.
Williams told police Dotson ran away and was trying to go to Homeland Grocery Store, 9225 N May Ave., to meet Campbell. As two officers drove toward the Homeland, another officer saw Campbell run into the house, according to the report.
The officers returned and arrested Campbell. Williams told police Dotson was hiding in the wall. Campbell had cut a hole in the wall behind a mirror so Dotson could hide, according to the report.
All three suspects were taken to the Oklahoma County jail. Williams was released Monday. Dotson is on hold for Cleveland County with bail set at $6,000. Campbell is on hold for Monroe County, Ind.
