Sallisaw man charged with burglary
Monday, September 20, 2022 - A Sallisaw man was charged Sept. 7 with second-degree burglary, a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison, court records show.
Matthew Carl Risenhoover, 27, was also charged with several misdemeanors, including knowingly receiving or concealing stolen property, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and the unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Aug. 26, a Sallisaw police officer was patrolling the area of East Fryar Drive and approaching the intersection of South McGee and Fryar Drive.
As the officer neared the intersection, he observed lights passing behind the house on the east side of South McGee Street.
The officer followed the vehicle and once he got close enough, he discovered that the car had no tag light.
Upon making contact with the driver, Risenhoover, he noticed several rolls of new fencing wire and a fence panel, which the officer knew was normally kept in the fenced-in area at the Tractor Supply store.
A search of Risenhoover’s vehicle turned up a marijuana vape cartridge and a yellow container with three joints and a green, leafy substance. A grinder was also located in the vehicle.
Risenhoover was placed into custody for second-degree burglary.
