Deputies make arrests in burglary ring

By  | 

JOHNSTON COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) -- Johnston County deputies busted a burglary ring last week, and their neighbors share how the case was cracked.

"I was totally shocked from that," neighbor Jerry McCurry said.

Jerry McCurry was out of town for several days but came home to several Johnston County deputies in his neighborhood.

His next door neighbors, Reginna and Christopher Rogers, along with Jeffery Brown were arrested in connection to a burglary ring in the county.

"I was surprised with all the activity going on when I came in -- law enforcement was here," McCurry said.

Deputies say several burglaries occurred in the eastern part of Johnston County, and even Atoka County.

A deputy spotted a red dirt bike at home on East 5th street matching the description of one that had been reported stolen.

"Things been going on there for quite a while, so it didn't surprise me at all," neighbor Sue Clements said.

Deputies recognized the home because they say they'd been called there for drug activity in the past.

When deputies arrived they say they also found a four wheeler, hunting equipment, and guitars on the property.

Clements says she's relieved.

"I'm glad, you don't want to have people like that living next to you," Clements said.

Illegal drugs and a .22 caliber rifle with ammunition were also found.

Christopher and Reginna Rogers were charged with possession of stolen property and drug possession within 2,000 feet of a school.

The Rogerses are still in jail on bond, Brown wasn't charged in Johnston County but was taken to the Grayson County Jail for other warrants.

"Hopefully we won't have to worry about that over there anymore," Clements said.

The sheriffs department is still searching for another suspect in Wapanucka.
