Altus Police: DOC inmate arrested for burglary

Posted: Updated:

Altus- Altus police say they arrested a Department of Corrections inmate from the Altus Work Center after he broke into a business early Tuesday morning.

Chief Tim Murphy says officers responded to an alarm, with glass breakage, shortly before 1 a.m. at 221 West Broadway. Upon arriving, police saw a man walking around inside the business. They entered the business and apprehended 35-year-old Melvin L. Brown.

Murphy says Brown was wearing a gray shirt with "Corrections" stenciled on the back. The suspect entered the business by breaking a window and once inside tampered with a classic 1946 Mercury car. Brown was transported to the Jackson County Jail on Charges of 2nd Degree Burglary, Damage to Property and Tampering with a Vehicle.
