Alleged meth dealer reported to police by unhappy customer
Police in southeast Oklahoma recently received a bizarre tip from an angry meth buyer.
According to KFOR, The Local Knights Inn, lead by 43-year-old Shannon Folsom, has been a have for crime for years.
"Probably 3 calls a week down there, sometimes three calls a day," David Spears, Chief of Police in Savanna told KFOR. "This thing has just kind of festered into a problem."
"When this lady was hired, I told management I didn't think she was part of the solution," said Spears.
A new threat from an angry tenant has proved Spears' point.

A woman said she tried to buy $100 worth of methamphetamine from Folsom.
She says she paid Folsom the money in full, but never received the drugs.
The woman says she was then taunted by Shannon and her boyfriend, Jeremy Owens, who suggested that she 'could always call the cops and tell them her dope money was stolen.'
And that's exactly what she did.
She was soon connected with the county's drug task force.
"The task force picked up information that they were selling drugs," said Spears. "They got a warrant, and they come down with our officer and served that warrant."
They reportedly found a illegal items inside the room along with a two-year-old child.
Owens and Folsom were swiftly arrested and the case remains under investigation by the district attorney's office.
