Tulsa Woman Found Hiding in Crawl Space

Christi Gordon

A north Tulsa woman was arrested late Monday night after police found her hiding underneath a house following an attempted traffic stop.

Tulsa Police booked Christi Gordon into the Tulsa County Jail following her arrest Monday night. She was taken into custody on complaints of endeavoring to manufacture and obstructing justice, among other charges.

According the arrest report, an officer was assigned to the 1500 block of W. 51st St. in reference to a disturbance. At the scene he witnessed Gordon exiting a parking lot in a vehicle matching the caller's description.

When the officer caught up with the vehicle he observed that the two front doors and one back door were open. Gordon and her passenger, later identified as Eric Saunders, were no longer inside the vehicle.

During his search of the vehicle the officer found several items associated with drug paraphernalia, including:

- Drano

- Coffee filters

- Plastic bottles

- Fuel in a can

"My training and experience tells me that the items are used to manufacture methamphetamine," the officer described in his report.

After a canvas of the scene the officer located Gordon and Saunders hiding in a crawl space under a house in the 1500 block of W. 49th St. This was just a few blocks from where they left the vehicle.

Both suspects were taken into custody and a records check showed that Gordon had multiple warrants against her. The officer also determined that her license was suspended and the vehicle's tags were invalid.

Gordon is being held on $25,000 bond for the endeavoring to manufacture complaint. She is due to appear in court next week.
