LPD: Traffic Stop, Foot Pursuit Lead to Burglary Arrests

LAWTON Okla_ Lawton police have arrested two men for burglarizing a home on Lawton's east side.

LPD Captain Craig Akard released the details of the arrests in a press release. He said they arrested 19-year-old Edward Ricketts and 21-year-old Jacoby Hutcheson for the crime Wednesday.

Akard said somebody called police on Nov. 4 to report the burglary. Wednesday morning, the officer who took the report spotted a vehicle matching the description of the one used in that burglary near I-44 and Gore Blvd. The officer pulled the car over, and the passenger got out of the car and ran away.  The driver was arrested on the spot. Other officers chased the passenger and later caught and arrested him.

The passenger took his coat off and dropped it on the ground while he was running. Police later found a loaded gun inside the coat. Akard said officers could see a large sum of money and several masks in the floorboard of the car. Police impounded the car and are working to get a search warrant, so they can look for more evidence.

Akard said this investigation is ongoing. You can count on 7News to keep you updated.
