LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Lawton Police arrested a man after he admitted to stealing a sword and tried to run away.

Witnesses called police after they saw a black Chevy Suburban make several passes along Northwest 50th Street before it stopped in front of a home and a man got out. They told police the man took off his jeans and went into the home and came out with a large sword. The Suburban went south a few homes and picked up another man.

Police were able to talk to two of the people who live in the home where the sword was taken. They told police their back door was kicked in and the sword was taken. The two were then taken to an apartment complex on the 2300 block of Northwest 38th Street after police stopped the suspect to identify their sword.

The suspect, Rikey Bell, admitted that he “hit a lick” on the home, but had nothing to do with what may have happened at a second home nearby. Bell told police he got into the home through the back door, but was scared when the burglar alarm went off.

Police then ran Bell for possible warrants and learned he had a traffic-related warrant out of Greer County. They placed him under arrest for the burglary and for the warrant. Before police left the apartment complex parking lot, Bell stuck his hands through the half-open window of the patrol car and opened the door. He ran through a field and across Northwest 38th Street before he was caught on the 2600 block of Northwest 35th Street.

Bell was arrested for the warrant from Greer County, second-degree burglary and escape from custody.

The sword was released to the owner.
