Sand Springs police identify three suspects involved in high-speed chase and manhunt

PAWNEE COUNTY, Okla. — UPDATE 8/2/2022 1:50 p.m.: The Sand Springs Police Department (SSPD) identified three suspects involved in a police chase that stretched through Sand Springs and into Pawnee County on Monday.

SSPD said 31-year-old Brandon Beaty, 32-year-old Aubrey Beaty and 30-year-old Tiffany Delgado are suspected to be involved in the chase. SSPD said charges are pending on all three.

According to an arrest report, Brandon was arrested for charges including petit larceny from a retailer, driving while suspended/revoked/canceled, eluding a police officer/endangering others and possession of a stolen vehicle. Aubrey is facing charges of two counts of joyriding.

On Monday evening, the Pawnee County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) arrested three suspects, two women and a man, after multiple agencies had been looking for them for nearly seven hours.

“It’s like a SWAT team in our backyard,” said Holly Chanult, a Sand Springs woman who watched the manhunt unfold.

Sand Springs police said the three suspects were stealing at a Tractor Supply Company near 41st and Highway 97 in Sand Springs.

When police responded, they said they found the three theft suspects in a Chevy Tahoe that was reported stolen. When they tried to make contact, the Tahoe took off leading police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) on a high-speed chase.

Police said on Highway 412, an OHP vehicle tried a tactical maneuver to stop the Tahoe and ended up running into a wall. Police said during this crash, an officer afraid for his life discharged his weapon.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) was called out to investigate what they’re calling, an officer-involved shooting.

Police said the Tahoe, driving the wrong way down Highway 412, eventually ended up on the western side of Keystone Lake, where many people like Chanult call home.

The car was ditched there and the suspects took off on foot.

“Then all of the sudden I look out this window, and there were 20 cops lined up on our yard with AR-15s. Rather scary, like something out of a movie, and they all just disappeared down into the woods,” Chanult said.

Just before 6 p.m. when Sand Springs Captain Jody Fogleman said PCSO deputies spotted the three suspects.

“Walking down the road, no vehicle, a deputy stopped them to ask them what they were doing and they made a spontaneous headraces that they were the ones involved in the pursuit,” he said.

Since OSBI has taken over much of the case, Fogelman can’t release the suspects’ names at this time. He said OHP and OSBI may be pressing their own charges, but Sand Springs police are charging the suspects with multiple crimes.

“We’re gonna charge them with the initial larceny, the possession of a stolen vehicle and felony eluding. The rest of the charges will come from OSBI and OHP,” Fogleman said.

Deputies took two women away in cuffs and loaded one man into an ambulance to be treated at the hospital for heat related illness.

Police said no one was seriously injured during the entire chase, crash or arrest.
