A Webbers Falls man was arrested Oct. 23 and charged with first-degree burglary, police reports show.
Victor Lane Ferguson, 23, faces up to 20 years in prison on the felony charge.
On Oct. 23, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was alerted to a possible burglary at a residence near the Gore Police Department.
When the deputy arrived at the location he spoke with the the homeowner who told the officer he had been asleep when he heard a noise on the front porch. He said he got out of bed to look and saw a male wearing a red jacket standing inside the door of his house. The homeowner said he shoved the intruder, Ferguson, outside. He also said that Ferguson had taken shoes off his back porch and had left his shoes there. It's believed that Ferguson had entered other buildings on the property as well because doors had been left open.
Ferguson was transported to the Sequoyah County Jail. He told the deputy that he was headed to his friend's house but got lost in the field. He admitted taking shoes off of the porch but did not know why. He also said he entered the home just to look because he had never seen a house like that in Gore.
