Burglars strike Ada; leave evidence behind

Ada — Law enforcement is investigating several burglaries which occurred in Ada Thursday.

Ada police were called to Kiwanis Ball Park on Rosedale Road Thursday morning.

“I spoke with Chad Lancaster who stated that sometime (9 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. Thursday), someone broke into their storage building,” Officer Kylor Pool said in a report. “(Lancaster) showed me where it appeared someone had driven a vehicle through a chain-link fence in the northwest corner of the ballpark. He stated that a 2012 16-foot Holt trailer was missing.”

Also stolen was a Big Dog zero-turn mower. Stolen property was valued at $6,000.

“I further observed a red bandana on the outer edge of the ball field near the storage building,” Pool said. “(Lancaster) stated the bandana had not been there yesterday. I collected the bandana as evidence.”

Pool said there were ruts left in the field where it appeared the trailer’s jack had dragged along as the thief or thieves left.

“I traced the rut from the burglary scene to Rosedale Road,” Pool said.

Pool noticed Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police Officer Brent Harper across the street from the Kiwanis burglary scene. Harper was investigating a burglary at Chickasaw Nation Headstart and Child Development Center.

“Officer Harper informed me that various tools and hand tools were taken from this burglary,” Pool said. “Officer Harper informed me he looked at video and his suspect vehicle was a white Chevrolet 4x4 pickup.”

Pool said in the video footage, the truck appeared to be an extended cab pickup with black molding running down the lower portion of the pickup. He said it was about a 2000 year model.

“I further observed the truck to have tinted windows and appear to have blackish looking rims,” Pool said.

Another burglary occurred during the same time frame in the 1300 block of Hoppe Boulevard. Pool also responded and spoke with Kimo Hayes who owns Roadhouse Renovations.

Hayes showed Pool where someone had broken a lock on the side of an enclosed work trailer. Hayes said stolen items included four green and four red air hoses, each 50 feet in length, two DeWalt routers, two DeWalt grinders, two DeWalt sanders, DeWalt jigsaw and kit and DeWalt reciprocating saw.

Anyone with information on this or any crime can phone Ada CrimeStoppers at 33CATCH (332-2824), report the information and remain anonymous.
