CLEVELAND COUNTY, Okla. – A Midwest City man’s bizarre confession took Cleveland County deputies by surprise.
On March 27, deputies were called to a home in Oklahoma City limits after the homeowner reported a burglary.
The homeowner told officers that his son was home when a stranger broke into their house.
A neighbor also told the homeowner that a sports utility vehicle was parked in the driveway at the time of the break-in.
The neighbor also said the SUV sped away before the homeowner arrived.
After checking the house, the homeowner couldn’t find anything missing.
At the same time, a vehicle matching the description of the one in the homeowner’s driveway was spotted at a nearby convenience store.
Authorities confronted the driver, 36-year-old Todd Oliver Ameen, but never expected to get a confession.
Ameen admitted to being at the home, saying he was with his grandfather.
However, he said his grandfather had passed away and was with him in spirit.
Deputies say Ameen told them that his “spirit grandfather” helped him get into the house through a window.
Ameen was arrested for first-degree burglary.
