Felony charges are filed in connection with burglary

ENID, Okla. — An Enid man was charged this week with several felonies related to a March 5 burglary.

Ricky Kyle Maxwell, 24, is facing counts of first-degree burglary, feloniously pointing a firearm and knowingly concealing stolen property related to the incident. He also faces a misdemeanor count of squatting.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Enid Police Department responded at 4:09 a.m. March 5 to a report of a burglary in the 5600 block of Cedar Ridge.

A man who lives at the home told police he was awakened by a call from his boss at about 4 a.m. His boss told the man he was on his way to pick him up for work.

The man said when he got up, he saw his front door was open and a 46-inch Samsung TV was missing from the residence. The man told police while he was standing in the living room, he heard his roommate’s bedroom door close.

The man said he went to her door and knocked, and when he opened the door, he saw Maxwell standing in the doorway holding a gun in his right hand, according to the affidavit. He said Maxwell was wearing a black coat and beanie and ran past him and out the front door, heading east on foot.

Officer Lee Frisendahl spoke with the woman. She said she woke up and a man was standing in her room holding a gun.

She said when the man heard her roommate get up, he closed her bedroom door and pointed the handgun at her, according to the affidavit. The woman said she blacked out from fear, and when she awoke again, her iPhone was missing.

Frisendahl also spoke with the man’s boss. He said when he pulled up to the residence he saw a man dressed in all black walking out of the residence on foot and heading east on Cedar Ridge.

The man who lives at the residence said he found a flashlight and cellphone in the foyer that did not belong to him or his roommate.

Frisendahl used the phone to call the 911 Center and obtained the number for the phone.

Detective Justin Skaggs prepared a search warrant for the phone, which was searched by Sgt. Dustin Albright.

Detective Casey Von Schriltz examined the phone and noted photos of the woman who lived at the residence on Cedar Ridge. Von Schriltz also found a video with a time of 10:49 p.m. March 4 that appeared to have been filmed from outside the woman’s residence, according to the affidavit. The video appears to have been filmed through open window blinds and shows the woman wrapped in a towel moving around her bedroom.

According to the affidavit, the woman does not appear to be aware she was being filmed.

Sgt. Randy King contacted Maxwell’s father. He said he did not know where his son was, but had been contacted by him March 4 from the same phone that was found in the foyer of the residence on Cedar Ridge.

Von Schriltz spoke with Garfield County Sheriff’s Deputy Laura Roberts, who provided an address for Maxwell, as well as the same phone number as the phone found in the foyer on Cedar Ridge.

Von Schriltz and Skaggs went to the address given to them by Roberts, 1812 S. Leona Mitchell, and knocked on the apartment door. The detectives could hear people moving around inside the apartment, but no one answered the door.

The apartment manager told detectives the residents of the apartment had been given notice and moved out, according to the affidavit. She also said they were supposed to return their keys sometime that week.

Maintenance workers at the apartment told detectives they saw five people enter the apartment prior their arrival. They described one of the people entering as matching the description of Maxwell, according to the affidavit.

After Von Schriltz called for additional units to come to the scene, the door to the apartment opened, and Maxwell was standing in the doorway, according to the affidavit. Maxwell and two women were detained on suspicion of trespassing.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for the apartment and Maxwell’s car. Detectives found the stolen Samsung TV and an iPhone inside the apartment that had been reported stolen from the residence on Cedar Ridge, according to the affidavit.
