ENID, Okla. — Two suspects wanted for the Aug. 5 theft of a car from an Enid pizza deliveryman are in jail in Knoxville, Tenn.

Toni L. Black, 34, and Bradley W. McGlothlin, 22, were arrested in the east-central Tennessee city on drug and theft charges.

According to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office website, both will appear in court today. Black will appear as a co-defendant on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. McGlothlin will appear as a defendant on charges of fugitive from justice, theft of property or services valued at $500 or less, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Black’s bond is set at $1,000 on the theft charge and $1,500 on the drug charge. McGlothlin’s bond is set at $1,500 on each of the two two charges.

Both were wanted on Garfield County warrants for conjoint robbery unauthorized use of vehicle. Those charges stem from allegedly forcing Chance Stevison at knifepoint inside a Sunridge Estates apartment when he went there to deliver a pizza.

Stevison told police when he went to Sunridge Estates Aug. 5, 2013, to deliver a pizza, he knocked on the door at the address where the pizza had been ordered and the man and woman who were occupants of the house called through the door to ask who it was.

“I knocked on the door and they didn’t first answer the door, they just called through the door, ‘Who is it?’” Stevison said. “I told them it was Domino’s. They opened the door, grabbed my shirt and pulled me through the door, then pulled out knives.”

According to an Enid Police Department report, the man told Stevison he needed his car to go to Louisiana to see his child in the hospital. Stevison told him to take the car.

“They had it all planned out,” Stevison said. “They had baskets with laundry and things right by the door.”

Stevison reported the pair removed the battery from his cellphone so he could not call 911, and also took about $30 he had in his pocket before loading their possessions into his 2004 Isuzu Rodeo and driving off.

EPD Capt. Jack Morris earlier said Stevison’s car was found a few days later in Fort Worth, Texas. Stevison said the car was badly damaged.

Irene Asai, assistant district attorney for Garfield County, said Black and McGlothlin might have to work through the Tennessee charges before Garfield County will get them back to face the charges here. She has not yet had the opportunity to find out how severe the Tennessee charges are.

“They’ll probably be taken before a judge over there and it will be determined if they are going to waive extradition,” Asai said.

Stevison, whose primary job is district sales manager for the Enid News & Eagle, had taken the part-time pizza delivery job to save up some extra money because he and his wife have a new baby on the way. He has since quit the part-time pizza delivery position.
