    ED)-- The individual who died in Wednesday evening’s massive explosion west of Waukomis has been identified. 33 year-old Keith Milacek died in the incident. Amy Elliott with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told Enid News and Eagle, “The cause of death is pending at this time. They are conducting a full toxicology screen before they rule. The screen can take four to six weeks.” Milacek’s body was found in a burned vehicle at the oil tank battery site. The explosion occurred around 6:45 p.m, in the area of Flynn Road between Garland and Wheatridge. Garfield County Sheriff Jerry Niles said the incident is being treated as an ongoing investigation because officials are unsure whether it was an industrial accident or not. Deputies will be doing follow-ups the next couple of days and wait for the medical examiner’s report.

    DR)--An Enid man was arrested this morning following the attempted robbery of an Enid pharmacy where he often shopped. Enid News and Eagle reports 26 year-old Mark McCamey was taken into custody at gunpoint by Sgt. Eric Reddick after he attempted to rob Rick's Pharmacy, 811 W. Randolph. Police received a 911 call at 7:51 a.m. reporting a man entering the store carrying a backpack and baseball bat, wearing a mask demanding Oxycontin and other painkillers. According to the report, employees recognized the robber's voice and when they told him by name that he did not want to do this, he told them, "Don't call me Mark." Police say McCamey fled from the store and entered the alleyway between Rick's Pharmacy and Planet Fitness. McCamey dropped the baseball bat near a trash bin and threw the backpack beneath a truck in the Planet Fitness parking lot. McCamey was taken into custody a short distance away and was found carrying a large knife. Employees reportedly positively identified McCamey as the robber. Formal charges are pending.

Mailed applications need to be marked to the attention of the Training Division. The goal of Enid Police Department's Citizens Police Academy is to educate Enid residents about the structure and activities of the police department, Wilson said. Citizens Police Academy class is not a training class, but is an information class, a behind-the-scenes look at Enid Police Department. The academy is free to attend and meets 6:30-9:00 p.m. Tuesdays for 13 weeks. Class sizes are limited to ensure the quality of the course. The objective of the academy is not to make police officers out of the graduates, but to make them better-informed residents, with an accurate knowledge of the department's responsibilities and functions.
