Altus Police Arrest Suspected Car Burglar

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS Okla_ Altus police believe they have the man who's burglarized at least a dozen vehicles over the past several weeks.

37-year-old Tony Baker, of Vernon, Texas was arrested shortly after 10:00PM Wednesday, after officers spotted his truck. Baker later confessed to the crimes.

Police say Baker had been suspected of burglarizing two vehicles Wednesday night at the Altus auditorium. The windows had been broken out and two purses were taken. He's also accused of burglarizing several vehicles early Wednesday morning, again by breaking the windows out and stealing property.

Police found some of the stolen items in Baker's truck, along with his two children, ages 11 and 13. They were released to a grandparent, and Baker was taken to jail.

He's currently being held on complaints of auto burglary, but additional charges are expected, including unlawful use of credit or debit card.
