Five men burglarized a Tulsa home on Saturday, killing the resident’s dog in the process, police said.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 100 block of South Xanthus Avenue around 6:30 p.m., according to arrest reports.
Police arrived to find a man wearing latex gloves standing in the back doorway of the home, the report reads. When the man saw the officers, he closed the door and seconds later several men fled the home on foot.
Police discovered the resident’s dog was shot and killed during the alleged burglary, according to the report. An SKS assault rifle and ammunition were among the items taken.
Four men were arrested within two blocks of the residence. Several witnesses reported seeing a fifth man, who has not yet been apprehended.
Dwayne Demons, 18; Lloyd Lee Trotter, 20; Tyler De’Angelo Prince, 19; and Dominique Lamon Wilson, 21 are being held on complaints of second-degree burglary, cruelty to animals, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony and resisting arrest.
When police caught up to Wilson, he was allegedly carrying the stolen rifle, marijuana, digital scales and a latex glove. He’s also being held on complaints of knowingly concealing stolen property and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Police allege Demons and Trotter were both found with prescription medications, oxycodone and Xanax, and that Prince was also carrying marijuana. A search of Trotter also yielded what police believed to be the stolen ammunition, according to the report.
Trotter pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons charge in 2011 and misdemeanor drug possession in 2010.
The men remain at the Tulsa Jail. Their bonds range from $19,750 to $26,000.
