Alva woman charged with harboring fugitive


August 6, 2017

An Alva woman has been charged with a felony after officers say she lied about the presence of a man they were seeking. Elizabeth Susan Kennedy, 51, of Alva has been charged with harboring a fugitive from justice, a felony. This crime is punishable by imprisonment of up to ten years and a $10,000 fine.

According to court documents, Woods County Deputy Adam Honeyman went to a residence on Hart Street about 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26. Also present were OSBI Agent Chris Ray and Alva Police Officers Kris Franta and John Caviness. They were attempting to serve a felony arrest warrant for Timothy Toone.

Franta knocked on the door which was answered by Kennedy. Honeyman explained why they were at her door. Kennedy said Toone no longer lived with her, and they were no longer on speaking terms as he was not allowed on her property. Honeyman asked where Toone might be, and Kennedy said he was living with his mother in Alva.

Honeyman said he did not believe she was being truthful. She continued to say that Toone was not there. Honeyman asked if they could look to make sure, but she said no because of previous history with him.

Honeyman suggested that Officer Franta could look and explained they just wanted to be sure Toone was not in the apartment. Honeyman warned her twice if Toone inside, she would go to jail for harboring a fugitive from justice.

Kennedy stepped to the side allowing Franta to enter. As soon as Franta could see the couch area behind the door, Honeyman heard him say, “Well, hello Tim.”

Toone was placed under arrest on the warrant, and Kennedy was also arrested.
