Greenwood Man Sought in Break-in

An affidavit issued Aug. 8 reveals that a Greenwood man faces three felony burglary charges after a break-in in rural Sequoyah County.

Records show that Jeremiah Nicholas Allen, 30, has been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, second-degree burglary and third-degree burglary.

Police say that on the night of July 16, Allen and three alleged co-conspirators went to a rural Sequoyah County home owned by Stephen Fowlkes. 

When Fowlkes discovered the theft, he told police that a large Dewalt commercial radio, a diamond horseshoe-shaped ring and other items had been stolen, as well as an old wallet containing several credit cards that had been in Fowlkes’ truck.

On July 17, police reports indicate that Allen and two other accomplices went to the Walmart on Zero Street in Fort Smith, where they bought two cell phones and three cards for putting minutes on the devices. The items were paid for with a Discover card belonging to Fowlkes.

Closed-circuit footage from the store showed the three inside the store. Walmart also gave police the receipts for the purchases.

Allen’s bond was fixed at $10,000.

The conspiracy count is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000 or both. Second-degree burglary carries a punishment of up to seven years in prison. Third-degree burglary is subject to up to five years in prison.
