Durant Burglary Suspect Leaves Clue at Crime Scene


Durant, OK--- Three Oklahoma residents are facing felony charges after allegedly stealing $20,000 worth of electronics and music equipment from First Baptist Church in Durant.

One of the suspects left behind a big clue. Police say 20-year-old Hannah Kinney left her cell phone inside one of the rooms at the church.

"We had to get a search warrant for the cell phone in order to get the information off of it and determine who the owner was. Once we determined who the owner was, we started making our interviews and trying to find out who was involved," Durant Police Lt. Chris Marcy said.

Police say the phone led them to Kinney, as well as, 19-year-old Onis Robertson and 26-year-old Khyle Emerson.

Church members say the three got away with computers, televisions, guitars and other expensive music equipment.

"It was kind of a punch in the gut to walk in one morning and find a lot of your items taken,"  First Baptist Church Minister of Music Ken Bartholomew said.

Luckily, church members say most of the items will be returned.

Now police say they are charging the three suspects with second degree burglary and knowingly concealing stolen property. For both charges, they say suspects could face up to 12 years in prison.
