OSBI Arrests Former Beaver OK Police Chief

Joe Denoyer - August 20, 2021 2:42 pm


BEAVER, Okla. – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) arrested the former Beaver Police Chief Justin Lee Earls on one count of Harboring a Fugitive, which is a felony punishable by a 10 year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

Earls’ arrest was the culmination of an OSBI investigation requested by the Beaver County District Attorney’s Office. Earls was employed as the Chief of Police at the Beaver Police Department when he assisted a suspect with fleeing the jurisdiction to avoid arrest on a felony arrest warrant.

Earls’ arrest warrant was issued in Beaver County District Court on August 18, 2021 and Earls, 52, was arrested that day in Texas County, Oklahoma. He was booked into the Beaver County Jail.
