Police release identity of deputy involved in hoax

stabbed hoax

GUTHRIE, Okla.—Officials in Logan County have released the identity of a former reserve deputy who is accused of making up a bizarre story about an intruder breaking into his home.

Monday, 32-year-old Adam Striegel said he’d been stabbed by a man he found inside his home.

The former reserve deputy allegedly fired one shot at the intruder as the man ran from the home.

The call prompted a lock-down of Guthrie schools in the area and a manhunt involving numerous law enforcement agencies.

Authorities later determined it was all a hoax.

It will now be up to the Logan County District Attorney to decide whether or not to file charges.
