EDMOND, Okla. – An Edmond man is accused of trying to break into his parents’ home.
The homeowner heard glass shattering in the middle of the night. He promptly called 9-1-1, then grabbed his handgun.
“Uh yeah, someone is breaking into my house,” the 911 caller said.
“I need to know if you are armed,” dispatch said.
“I am armed,” the caller said.
The intruder had broken through the man’s bathroom window.
“Man, there is glass everywhere,” the caller said.
Moments later, he realized the intruder has a familiar face.
“It’s my son,” the homeowner told the 9-1-1 dispatcher.
“Your son?” dispatch said.
“Yes, please hurry,” the caller said.
The panicked father still pleading for officers to arrive.
“I am going to tell him you are on your way,” the caller said. “You better have someone coming.”
“I have four officers heading that way,” dispatch said. “I have lots of officers headed that way.”
Police arrived on scene moments later.
The father told police that his son, Kolby Qualls, had taken off down the road, waded his way through a pond, and disappeared into the woods.
We spoke to neighbors who said they were stunned to hear the news.
“We talk all the time,” Blaine Gideo said. “Very educated people. Their whole family is.”
We are told Qualls hasn’t lived at the home in some time.
Court documents show Qualls has allegedly “stolen from them in the past due to his drug habit and his father wants to pursue charges against him.”
“They are great parents and the sisters that he has are very smart,” Gideo said.
Qualls remains locked up in the Oklahoma County Jail.
Editor’s Note: We have since talked with the suspect’s parents. They tell News 4 they do not want their son to be prosecuted.
