OKLAHOMA CITY — An early morning burglary ends in a police chase and four suspects behind bars.
Those suspects, 23-year-old Daniel Foster, 22-year-old Kasey Wells, 17-year-old Courtney Emerson and 15-year-old Roy Parkerson, have been arrested.
Police say the home they broke in to was not empty. The homeowner was there, heard them and then called police.
Things at Gary Massad’s house are much cleaner now than they were early Monday morning. Although, if you look around you can still see the signs someone was there.
Massad says, “The TV’s on the floor, the big screen TV. The remote was in the front yard.”
It was around 2:30 Monday morning Gary awoke to a noise. He saw a light coming in under his bedroom door.
He says, “I asked who’s there and then I heard voices and the breakage of things.”
When the noise stopped he came out to find his home ransacked. His front doors wide open.
Massad says, “I stood in the door and saw a black, old truck that had a loud exhaust.”
As he called 911 the truck took off. Within minutes police were not only at his house, but another group of officers had found the truck thanks to the description Gary gave.
The suspects refused to pull over and a pursuit began. It eventually ended at Northwest 19th and St Clair.
The suspects ran, but K9s and Air One were able to track them down.
Four suspects, two juveniles and two adults, were arrested.
As NewsChannel Four covered the story, Mike Childers got a call from police telling him to turn on his TV.
Childers says, “She said it was pretty big. There were four involved. It (his truck) was involved in a burglary.”
His truck had been stolen over the weekend.
Massad says, “They took all sorts of things. I’m trying to figure out what’s still missing.”
Back at Massad’s house the cleanup continues, and so does the investigation into how the suspects got in to this house.
Massad says, “Someone had a key because they looked at the door real close and said it wasn’t forced entry.”
Gary says his house has been under construction recently. He says numerous people had access to the key during that time. His locks have now been changed.
As for the suspects, they are facing felony charges of first degree burglary along with several other charges.
