Staff Writer

The Guymon Police Department and the Texas County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call on Sunday evening, resulting in the arrest of a man and woman after service of a warrant.
Just before 8 p.m. Sunday, officers went to a residence at the 200 block of N.E. 22nd St. in Guymon to serve an arrest warrant for 30-year-old Roman L. Dennett on an Application to Revoke Suspended Sentence. The application to revoke was placed on a possession with intent to manufacture charge stemming from 2007. Most recently, Dennett has been charged with larceny of a vehicle, a felony charge, with a preliminary hearing set for Oct. 18. Records show Kelly Hill posted a $10,000 cash bond for Dennett. Records show Hill has also paid $2,600 of Dennett’s fines and costs from the 2007 conviction. A fines and costs hearing is set in the 2007 drug conviction for Aug. 3, 2032.
Officers initially made contact with 31-year-old Hill, and asked her if Dennett was at the residence. She advised officers that he was at the home, but requested a moment before allowing the officers to enter.
Hill returned to the door to inform officers Dennett was not at the residence. After entering, officers confirmed Dennett was not inside the residence, but soon located him hiding in the attic. Officers observed three juveniles at the home; they also observed a glass bong, a scale with residue, cash, one gram of methamphetamine inside the residence as they searched for Dennett.
Dennett was arrested for distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, child endangerment and manufacture of a controlled dangerous substance.
Hill was arrested for Harboring a fugitive, maintaining a dwelling for distribution of drugs and child endangerment. A search of online records shows no previous convictions for Hill. The only fines listed show a 2015 traffic charge for failure to stop at a red light.
