Muldrow man charged with burglary
Wednesday, January 11, 2022 - A felony arrest warrant was issued Jan. 4 for a Muldrow man charged with second-degree burglary.
Lonnie Glen Hodges, 45, could face up to seven years in prison if he is convicted. His bond was set at $10,000.
On Sept. 1, a Sequoyah County deputy was dispatched to 478 E. 1000 Road in reference to a theft of property. He was met by Danny Thibodeaux, who said he had been trying to get his place ready to move into and had stored some of his things at the residence.
Thibodeaux stated that he came to the home on Aug. 24 and saw that someone had broken into it, but it was too dark at that time to determine what had been taken. When he returned to the property Sept. 1 and saw what was missing, he called the sheriff’s office.
Thibodeaux told deputies that he had put out some flyers about the theft and was told that Justin Kent had been bragging about it.
On Dec. 13, two sheriff’s deputies interviewed Hodges about some property he had been pawning at various shops in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Hodges said Kent had sold him the property and that he sold the items to earn some cash.
Deputies then informed Hodges that he had been caught on video driving a Toyota FourRunner and pulling into Thibodeaux’s yard more than once.
Hodges stated that he simply turned around in Thibodeaux’s yard and did not get anything from the house. When he was asked about video footage showing him walking around the house, Hodges again denied doing anything improper.
Hodges was then asked about a boy’s bicycle he had pawned in Van Buren, Ark. He said Kent had brought the bike to him for purchase and that he then sold it to the pawn shop.
Attempts to locate Kent have been unsuccessful.
