4 arrested in burglary bust

LAWTON, Okla._A major burglary bust in Lawton’s southwest side has led to the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen electronics, weapons and vehicles.

Police were called to the 100 block of Southwest 68th Street where a 911 caller said they were witnessing a disturbance with a gun. When an officer arrived and was waiting for back-up, he witnessed the burglary of a second home in progress. Four juvenile males were arrested following a short chase with police.

As a result of their arrests, police issued a search warrant on an area home where they recovered stolen goods, at least three rifles and Army-style body armor were recovered.

"It is a scary thing," a nearby neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified, said.

The neighbor was shocked to find out that several juveniles may have been responsible for a string of burglaries.

"People get out here and work hard for a living. Then you have these young guys out here, or young women, who want to get out here and rob from other people when there is no need to rob from other people," the neighbor said.

Four arrests were made, all juveniles, and neighbor's believe it's because they don't have the proper parenting at home.

"Kids get out here and they think [their] stuff is cool, so they get out here and break into other people's homes. I just think it is absolutely ridiculous.  It's a sad case," he said.

With rifles being recovered at the home, it makes this neighbor wonder what they planned on doing with them.

"Being a child and carrying a gun around, you think of the massacres that have happened all over the United States and kids that have this stuff, it worries me," he said.

He says it's a neighborhood that is too familiar with seeing crime, but hopes this bust will take care of that.

"I'm thinking it will wake some of these children up so that they'll do the right thing," he said.

Police believe the suspects are responsible for nearly two-dozen house and car burglaries that have plagued neighborhoods in southwest Lawton near Almor West Elementary.
