Burglar held at gun point as deputies arrive to scene
One robber quickly had the tables turned around on him when he broke into a Logan County home early Sunday morning.
The result landed two adults and one juvenile arrested in a string of auto and residential burglaries.
Christopher Allen, 21, Timothy Slawson, 20, and a 17-year-old male juvenile are being held in the Logan County jail.
Deputies were called out to the area of Hamilton Drive, near Pine and Triplett, around 2 a.m. with the victim holding one of the burglars at gun point face down on the ground.
One of the suspects broke into the garage where the person inside was working. The suspect then took off on foot when he was confronted by the victim. The victim, who according to radio traffic had a license to conceal the firearm weapon, took off after the burglar.
Once in custody, the suspect provided information that lead to the arrest of two other suspected burglars.
According to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, deputies recovered a large amount of stolen property from around the area and now have the task of matching it to victims who have yet to come forward.
Allen pleaded guilty of possession of a controlled substance just this past April. Meanwhile, Slawson pleaded guilty of petit larceny in 2009.
“Please make sure to lock your vehicles, and remove any valuables from the vehicles. This is a temptation for burglars and frequently gives them access into your home via garage door openers left inside the vehicles,” the social media post said.
If you have anything missing from your property, you are urged to call the Sheriff’s Office to make a report at 405-282-4100.
