Drug Dealer Evades Police Chase to Get a Haircut

Officers arrested Sidrick Marquits Verner, 27, on several complaints, including eluding police after a felony conviction, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, possession of a controlled drug after a felony conviction, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute after a felony conviction, no driver’s license, no insurance/security verification, failure to stop for a red light and speeding.

During police pursuit, he decided to stop and get a haircut. In addition, he had an arrest warrant out for an improper pedestrian crossing charge.

Police said they saw a car cross several lanes of traffic near the R&R Food Store at 6110 S. Peoria Ave. before turning onto East 61st Street. The driver tried to evade officers and sped up eastward. The car turned into the Greenbriar Apartments, 2152 E. 61st Street, and a man — later identified as Verner — reportedly exited the vehicle and ran into the complex.

Police then set up a perimeter in the area. Police called Verner's name, where he exited the apartment and was taken into custody. Police noticed that Verner “sported a freshly clipped head with extremely short hair,” even though he reportedly had a “large amount of hair."

The apartment’s resident gave police permission to search the apartment, and officers reportedly found a 1911 .45ACP handgun and a box of .45 caliber ammunition.

Verner was booked into Tulsa Jail about 1:45 p.m. and was being held in lieu of $35,800 bail.
