Tulsa Deputies Arrest Employees, Owner of Downtown Bail Bond Business
Two men are behind bars this week after Tulsa deputies conducted a search warrant at a downtown bail bond business.
Employees Terry Horton and Jack Scheving were booked into the jail Wednesday evening. Both were arrested after the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office performed the search at Affordable Bail Bonds.
Major Tom Huckeby told KTUL that TCSO was notified of some illegal activity after receiving information that the owner, Roberta Ann Dampf-Aguilar was hiring convicted felons.
Dampf-Aguilar, 56, was arrested this evening and booked on allowing a person to engage in acts as a bail bondsmen.
A new law recently passed in Oklahoma makes it illegal for a felon to be a bondsmen. Or for the owner of a bail bond business to hire them.
Huckeby said that with the new law deputies were able to investigate and search the business. It's been located next to the Tulsa County Jail since 1991, according to their website.
Deputies located Horton at the business on the day of the search. He faces charges for being a bondsmen without a valid license.
Scheving was previously convicted for assault with a deadly weapon and false impersonation. He also had outstanding warrants.
Dampf-Aguilar is being held on $2,500 bond.
