Roland Man Charged with First-degree Burglary

A 44-year-old Roland man was charged in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, with first degree burglary after he broke into a Roland home, when the resident was at home, on Sept. 6.

Scott Christopher Lee was arrested in the home by a Roland police officer and was found to have the resident’s debit card and driver’s license in his pocket when he was arrested.

The female resident was able to leave the residence and was outside when Roland police arrived.

According to the arresting officer’s report, Lee tore a screen off a front window and entered the home by raising the window. When asked if he was supposed to be in the residence, Lee told the police officer, “No,” according to the report.

Lee is to be formally arraigned on the charge Sept. 21.

First-degree burglary is punishable by imprisonment for seven to 20 years.
