Suspects in robbery ID’d

ENID, Okla. — Two people have been charged in connection with a robbery of a pizza delivery driver last month.

According to a police affidavit, Toni L. Black, 34, and Bradley W. McGlothlin, 22, ordered a pizza and then took the driver’s car when he arrived. Authorities in Texas found the car.

The delivery driver, Chance Stevison, told police he approached the home and knocked on the door. A man and woman, later identified in a photo lineup as Black and McGlothlin, opened the door and pulled him inside.

McGlothlin said they needed the car so they could drive to Louisiana and visit a child in the hospital, the affidavit states. Stevison also said Black pulled a razor blade out and held it in her hand.

The two suspects then drove off in the 2004 Isuzu Rodeo.

Enid Police Department Detective Shawn Ramsey’s affidavit paints the picture from there. Police entered the apartment, located at 4121 S. Van Buren, and found pieces of paper with names of both the suspects. The pizza was ordered under Black’s name.

The next day, Ramsey spoke over the phone with McGlothlin, who said he did not steal the vehicle.

“He said that he asked the pizza man if he could use the vehicle and the pizza man said that he could,” Ramsey wrote in his affidavit to the district attorney.

At that point, McGlothlin disconnected the call. Ramsey next called McGlothlin’s grandmother, who agreed to notify police if the suspect contacted her. The next day, he did.

On Aug. 7, the grandmother called Ramsey and said she’d been asked to drive to Fort Worth to pick up both McGlothlin and Black.

Fort Worth police found Stevison’s Isuzu at that location. He told the Enid News & Eagle that it was “pretty badly messed up” with broken windows and interiors. Stevison’s day job is with the News & Eagle as a district sales manager, and he was working part-time as a Domino’s delivery driver because he has a child on the way.

Arrest warrants were filed by the district attorney Monday. Black and McGlothlin are charged with robbery and unauthorized use of a vehicle and face a $30,000 bond once they are arrested and returned to Garfield County.
