Deputies: Norman man arrested for home burglary, may be connected to other crimes
NORMAN, Okla. – A Norman man was taken into custody after allegedly burglarizing a home and stealing a vehicle.
Now, investigators are trying to determine if he is connected to other crimes in the area.
Around 11 a.m. on July 8, a homeowner called the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office after hearing someone inside his home.
The homeowner walked to a neighbor’s driveway to call for help, but left his car keys behind.
At that point, officials say a man and a woman took his car.
The next day, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper spotted 28-year-old Jesse Soza driving the stolen car in McClain County.
Investigators took Soza into custody, and believe he may be connected to several open investigations.
Authorities say Soza was arrested for second-degree burglary, larceny of a vehicle, three counts of knowingly concealing stolen property, two counts of unauthorized use of a credit card, reckless conduct with a firearm, possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony and pattern of criminal behavior.
If you have any information about this case, call the sheriff’s office at (405) 701-8888.
