Reports of a safe on fire in the middle of the roadway resulted in felony arson and burglary charges being filed.
Rogers County Sheriff’s Office and Chelsea Fire Department responded to a report of a safe on fire in the middle of a roadway north of 4220 and 350 road.
“The safe was full of papers that were on fire and I was able to pull an envelope out that had an address nearby...,” the deputy reported, adding that a burglary had recently been reported at the same address.
On scene, deputies were told the individuals in the residence came home from work and noticed the front door had been forced open and that the house and detached shed had both been burglarized, according to RCSO reports.
The homeowners reportedly showed them security doorbell camera footage—from which Sean Jones, 29, was identified.
Deputies later located a truck matching the one seen driven by Jones in the video.
Inside the truck they reportedly found jewelry boxes, a DeWalt drill, a pole saw and a chain saw, which had all been reported stolen from the residence.
“Sean confessed to breaking into the shed and the house in order to steal items,” deputies reported.
Jones was arrested and taken to Rogers County Jail.
He is facing multiple felony and misdemeanor charges including: first degree burglary, third degree arson, possession of stolen property, second degree burglary, possession of firearm after former felony, and malicious injury to property.
