Two members of the Cushing Police Department received a surprise visit Wednesday from U.S. Marshalls Mark Crawford and Kevin Stone.  Crawford and Stone attended a staff meeting to present Molly Gregg and Officer Chuck Claxton with citations recognizing their efforts in the apprehension of Ernest James.   James, under the Adam Walsh Act,  was listed #49 on the top 100 Most Wanted list.

“I want to recognize their efforts (Gregg and Claxton) to help us on this case,” Stone said.

Crawford echoed Stone’s comment with this: “I want to thank Molly – her report was so well done that it was ready for presentation.  Chuck’s interviews were precise and very instrumental in the apprehension of James.”

He went on to commend the staff as a whole, “This not only reflects well on your Chief, but the entire department.  Good job!”
