Burglar breaks in, can't break out

Ada — An alleged burglar called 911 when he couldn’t find an exit to the building he burglarized, police say.

Ada police said 22-year-old Michael Garvin of Ada was intoxicated when he called 911 after breaking into a business in the 1000 block of Cradduck Rd. The call came in just after 6 a.m. Saturday. He reportedly could not find his way out.

Officer Adam Vanlandingham and Jeremy Farmer were first on the scene and discovered the glass front door to the business broken. Officers entered and saw Garvin walking from an inside office with something in his hand, Vanlandingham said.

“The subject threw a mirror at officer (Michael) Meeks and took off toward the back of the business,” Vanlandingham wrote in a report.

Chickasaw Lighthorse police arrived with a police dog and officers began a search. Officers entered a room where they suspected Garvin was located.

“We searched the room and found blood leading up to the attic from a heating/air closet,” Vanlandingham wrote. “After telling the subject we were coming up, he began talking and telling us he would come down. After the subject came down, we secured him and placed him in handcuffs.”

Garvin reportedly told police his brother was with him and was in the attic. Vanlandingham and Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputy Tyler Mackey searched the attic, but no one was found. Police found a set of car keys on Garvin which belonged to a customer of a nearby body shop, Vanlandingham said.

“Upon looking at the vehicle, it appeared to have been vandalized inside the cab,” Vanlandingham wrote.

Garvin was arrested on suspicion of auto burglary and second-degree burglary.
