Lawton man charged with grand larceny

LAWTON, Okla._A former Lawton church pastor is back in jail for allegedly selling stolen electronics from the room of a local motel.

A grand larceny warrant for Bobby Burrell was issued last month after he and several accomplices were seen on security footage taking televisions, computers, and other property from local businesses.  Investigators were able to track him down last week after they responded to a possible kidnapping call from a motel on Northwest 31st Street and Cache Road. When police arrived, witnesses told them Burrell had just driven away with the alleged kidnapping victim after loading down the car with televisions. They said he often "set up shop" in the motel where he would sell the stolen items.

Burrell and the alleged kidnapping victim, who turned out to be his mother, were later found in another local motel and were both arrested. A search of their car and their motel room on Cache Road uncovered several stolen items and broken security tags.

Last year, Bobby Burrell was found not guilty of child sexual abuse charges after he was accused of touching himself in front of a teenager at his church in 2013.
