Three arrested for weekend vandalism in Owasso, Collinsville

OWASSO, OK — Rogers County deputies this weekend made arrests in connection with a series of vandalisms in westernmost Rogers County.

According to Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton, three men were arrested early Sunday morning after they “went on a drinking spree and threw bricks into several vehicles” in Owasso and Collinsville.

“More than a dozen vehicles were struck in all, including three cars at one home, a Trans Am which had the side and back windows bashed, and an SUV belonging to an OHP Trooper,” Walton said. “Witnesses told us they observed three men in a blue El Camino with a loud exhaust system, which ‘blew through a stop sign’ after throwing bricks at the trooper’s SUV.

“Following this, (Rogers County) Deputy Quint Tucker arrested the driver, Logan Seeling, for DUI and ten counts of malicious mischief.”

In addition to Seeling, Matthew Ryan Colvin and Chance Thomas Cummisky also were arrested for public intoxication and multiple counts of knowingly concealing stolen property.

At the time of the arrest, Deputy Tucker found several bricks and mailboxes — some of which still contained mail — in the vehicle.

“Thus far, we’ve got more than $11,000 damage in vandalized property reported, not to mention the stolen items they tore up,” Walton said,” but we feel that there may be other victims of these crimes who have yet to file a report with us or the Owasso Police Department.”

Walton also expressed his appreciation of the Owasso Police Department’s role in the case.

“The (Owasso) department is always a tremendous help to us whenever we have instances of cross-juristictional cases,” he said.

Seeling was released Monday on a $20,00 bond. Cummisky and Colvin are still in Rogers County Jail, bond on both set at $10,000.

Persons who feel they may have been the victim of these, or any other crimes, may contact the Rogers County Tip Line at 341-3620, the Claremore Police Department at 341-1212.
