ALTUS, OK (KSWO) –Altus police arrested a man shortly after a homeowner called and said someone was trying to break into his home.

Police were called to the home on the 1500 block of Scott Street just before 1 a.m. and saw an east window was open. The suspect, later identified as 38-year-old Jake Heath Holsey, drove away from the home before police arrived.

The homeowner was able to give officers a description of the vehicle and Holsey was found leaving the area. Holsey led police on a short pursuit and was caught in an irrigation canal just south of Altus city limits.

During a search of Holsey’s vehicle, they found a loaded firearm, drug paraphernalia, suspected methamphetamine, pills, alcohol and a handheld police scanner. Holsey was arrested and booked into the Jackson County Jail.
