A Muldrow man is facing a third-degree burglary charge after he was caught breaking into a trailer that did not belong to him.
On Feb. 21, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to East 1080 Road in reference to a white male attempting to enter a residence that did not belong to him. While the deputy was on his way to that address, he learned from dispatch that the man, identified as Jester C. McKinney, 32, had left that location and gone to another residence at 474526 East 1080 Road.
The deputy went to the second address, where he found McKinney standing shoeless in the driveway and wearing women’s clothing.
The homeowner, Bob Harkreader, said he had been inside his home and heard someone breaking into his utility trailer next to the house. When he came outside, Harkreader said he saw McKinney inside his trailer.
When confronted, a seemingly confused McKinney told the deputy that the home, the trailer and a black truck in the driveway belonged to him. All those statements were untrue.
McKinney reportedly had large-diameter pupils and his odd behavior led the deputy to arrest him. He was then transported to the Sequoyah County Jail.
Third-degree burglary is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. McKinney’s next court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. March 11.
