ENID, Okla. — Police say an 18-year-old Enid man charged this week with burglary and receiving stolen property was the target of a sting.
Shaun Austin Prock was arrested last week by police after he was found with items taken from several vehicles parked on East Maple.
Prock was charged Tuesday with a felony count of third-degree burglary and a misdemeanor count of knowingly receiving stolen property.
Enid Police Department Sgt. Nick John said Prock was caught in a sting operation targeting burglaries to vehicles. He said Prock broke into a city owned vehicle, and when officers made contact with Prock he was in possession of items taken from other vehicles in the area.
Officers responded at 3:30 a.m. Sept. 26 to the 900 block of East Maple. Officers saw Prock in the 1100 block of East Maple and saw he was in possession of items taken from the city's vehicle, according to an affidavit filed in the case. Prock told officers he was walking to a friend's house but could not tell officers the address.
Prock was placed under arrest for stealing the items from the vehicle, according to the affidavit. Prock admitted to officers he took the items from the vehicle and walked away.
Officers went to the 900 block of East Maple where the items were stolen and also found two vehicles with their doors ajar in the 600 and 700 blocks of East Maple, according to the affidavit. Officers reported those vehicles were left in the same manner as the vehicle owned by the city of Enid.
An officer spoke with the owners of the other two vehicles, and they said there was nothing missing from their vehicles, according to the affidavit.
Prock faces up to five years in prison on the felony charge and up to six months imprisonment on the misdemeanor charge.
