A Roland woman was charged April 1 in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, with second-degree burglary, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Misty Dawn Reese, 37, is accused of burglarizing a Roland home on March 21.
The homeowner told Roland police he left home to get something to eat, and when he returned he found Reese leaving the home by unlocking the front door. The homeowner said he did not find anything missing at the time, but later reported missing $40 in cash. The homeowner picked Reese’s photo from a photo lineup.
Roland police interrogated Reese’s husband and friends, and eventually received a phone call from the suspect. Reese told police she gained entry to the home by an unlocked side door. She said she was looking for pain medications. Reese said she would come to the Roland Police Station on March 25, but when she did not, a warrant was issued for her arrest. Her bond was set at $5,000.
Second-degree burglary is punishable by imprisonment of 2 to 7 years.
