Man jailed for burglary

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police arrested a Fort Gibson man Wednesday after he allegedly burglarized a home garage and auto-repair garage.

Danny Ray Kirk Jr., 21, was booked into jail for two counts of second-degree burglary, knowingly concealing stolen property, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, bringing contraband into a penal institute, grand larceny and malicious injuries to property. Associate District Judge Mark Dobbins set a $10,000 bond for Kirk.

According to Lt. Billy Dowling, Kirk broke into the garages and stole a motorcycle, torch set, fishing poles, hand tools, automobile paint sprayers, tents, an air compressor, and more.

Some items were recovered when Capt. Dale Glory arrested Kirk.

In other matters, police arrested Ricky W. Carey, 21, of Hulbert, for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license early Friday morning.

Employees at the Department of Human Services filed a report last week about receiving harassing phone calls.

Cyndul Miller reported unknown suspects stole a new push mower, a weedeater, and a two-gallon gas can Tuesday.

Betty Ramirez filed a threats and harassment report with police Wednesday.

Robert Mickel told police Wednesday that an unknown person attempted to steal his vehicle by cutting and splicing wires together.
