4 arrested following grand larceny in home near Claremore

CLAREMORE —

Three suspects involved in grand larceny were arrested early Tuesday morning at a mobile home park in Foyil. A total of four arrests have been made in connection with the residential burglary.
The Claremore suspects were identified as Joseph Green, 34, Stephanie Fowler, 35 and Tasha Church, 30. One of the four suspects, 24-year-old Claremore man Robert Loyd, was arrested Saturday afternoon and has since been bonded out.
The burglary took place Friday in a home located in the southeast area of Claremore. Claremore Police Investigator Dusty Singer said the owners were on vacation in Mexico and weren’t due to return until Sunday. 
“It took some effort. The parents of the victims were out of town with them, but we were able to make contact through friends on Facebook,” he said. “We kept them updated on leads and any new information while they were out of the country.”
A friend of the couple, who was taking care of their dogs, discovered the stolen property.
Both of the owners’ vehicles were stolen from the house, as well as, electronics, jewelry and personal records. Investigators linked Loyd to the grand larceny, after receiving information that he was one of the people asked to watch the house.
After interviewing Loyd, investigators were able to obtain a search warrant for a mobile home located in Foyil. It was there they found Green, Fowler and Church, along with a majority of the stolen items. Other smaller property, which had been pawned by Loyd, was discovered at a local pawn shop.
Green had stolen homeowner Travis Fox’s identification and used his credit card information all over Tulsa, said Singer.
The stolen vehicles have since been recovered, he said. Rogers County deputies located one of the vehicles, and received information that lead them to the second, which was parked in a North Tulsa apartment complex. It was there in the apartment that more stolen property was found.
