On 10/2/2017 at approximately 0715 hours, a concerned citizen reported to the Hominy Police Department that there were a couple of suspicious subjects riding their bikes near the alleyway of her home. Chief Martin and Officer Bradley responded and made contact with Gage Roberts of Hominy, who was in the alleyway. While Officer Bradley was speaking with Roberts, Austin Cale of Hominy fled on his bike. Chief Martin caught up with Cale and placed him into hand restraints.
While speaking to Roberts, Officer Bradley discovered several prescription pill bottles with someone else's name on them in the pants pocket of Roberts. Also in his pocket was a small bag of marijuana.
At this same time, a citizen phoned to the police department and reported that his house had just been burglarized. The victim stated that he left to get his grandkids some breakfast and one of his grandchildren called him and said there were two men inside of the home and fled.
The victim reported several of his prescription pill bottles were missing, along with an iPad. While looking for the iPad, Chief Martin and Officer Bradley located Cales wallet, along with a pill bottle containing marijuana, methamphetamine, Xanax, morphine and a set of scales. The iPad was also recovered. These items were recovered after Cale ditched them while fleeing.
During a mirandized interview, both subjects admitted to Chief Martin to entering the back door of the victims residence. Roberts admitted to taking the pill bottles and Cale admitted to taking the iPad and ditching the drugs and the iPad while he was fleeing.
Both Cale and Roberts are currently being held in the Osage County Jail on a $50,000 bond. Their charges include 1st degree burglary, conspiracy, possession of CDS.
