BR)--An Enid man was arrested early Wednesday morning after authorities said he attempted to rob someone at OnCue on South Van Buren. 22 year-old Kade Christopher Browning was arrested on complaints of attempted armed robbery, shooting from a moving vehicle, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to a report from Enid Police Department, at 1:25 Wednesday morning, officers responded to a possible robbery in progress on 9th and Oklahoma. A 33-year-old Enid man told police he was parked at the OnCue at 1623 S. Van Buren when Browning allegedly pulled up next to him in a dark-colored GMC Envoy and motioned for him to come over. When the man approached, Browning allegedly pulled out a gun and asked for money. The man put his hands up and backed up toward his vehicle, the report said, and Browning then sped off. The man followed Browning and two passengers from OnCue to 9th and Oklahoma, where Browning allegedly fired a gun three times from the vehicle. When interviewed by police, Browning told officers he had gone to OnCue to pick up his girlfriend and said that the man, whom Browning said he didn’t know, at the gas station had come up to his vehicle “out of nowhere” to try and start a fight and that he was hitting Browning’s vehicle with a wrench or tire iron. Browning said he showed the man his gun to try and scare him off. After leaving OnCue, Browning said the man followed him and that he drove through parking lots to try and lose the man. Browning said he fired the shots to get the man to stop following him. Search warrants were executed for a residence in the 900 block of East Oklahoma and the Envoy. Inside the home, police reportedly recovered the pistol, two magazines and ammunition, suspected marijuana, suspected methamphetamine, numerous empty containers and drug paraphernalia. Browning was placed under arrest and booked into Garfield County Detention Facility without incident.

TC)--Enid’s Suddenlink office in the 2300 block of W. Garriott, reopened today following a temporary closure after the Oklahoma Tax Commission posted a notice revoking its tax license/permit. Company officials said after discussions with OTC, the store reopened this morning. OTC officials said that the notice of cancellation was served Wednesday due to the Suddenlink’s failure to respond to a Show Cause Hearing Notice and that the company has been in contact with OTC’s legal division and has obtained “permission to resume operations pending a review of the account.” According to the notice posted on Suddenlink’s front doors Wednesday, the tax license had been revoked for failure to comply with Oklahoma’s tax laws. All other Suddenlink locations in the state also showed up as “temporarily closed” online Wednesday.
