Three face stolen vehicle charges

DUNCAN — Two Duncan men were charged Wednesday for allegedly stealing a car and possessing stolen property, some of it taken from mailboxes and parked cars that same night.

In a separate matter, an arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for Jeramie Lyndell Stevenson, 32, of Duncan for allegedly possessing a stolen utility trailer and Honda all-terrain vehicle.

According to a police affidavit, the trailer was stolen July 26 from a residence on North 5th Street and the ATV was taken from East Willow.

Duncan Police were helped in their investigation by video surveillance obtained from Chisholm Corner on U.S. Highway 81 and Plato Road showing a white pickup with the ATV in the truck bed and the utility trailer hooked to the back.

Brendon Seth Henson, 22, of Duncan, and Zachary Houston Todd Spencer, 23, of Duncan, are each charged with one count of larceny of an automobile and possession of stolen property — both felonies — and a misdemeanor count of public intoxication.

There were no records filed as of late Wednesday afternoon indicating a court appearance or bond being set. The men were being held in the Stephens County Jail.

Duncan Police said they responded late Monday night to reports that vehicles were being burglarized along the 100 block of Forest Hills. A tan or gold van was reported in the area, according to a police affidavit.

A gold or tan van also was spotted later that night in the 2400 block of Meadowview, where someone was looking in mailboxes. Police were then told that a 2008 Dodge Avenger had been stolen from the 400 block of 19th Street. It was later located parked at the Duncan High School football stadium.

Police later responded to a report that fireworks were being set off at Magnolia Manor on Country Club Road, where the van was spotted and Henson and Spencer were arrested. There was mail and merchandise in the van.

Spencer told police Henson had stolen the Dodge Avenger but both men were charged for it.

That charge carries a sentence of three to 20 years and fine up to three times the value of the stolen vehicle. Possession of stolen property carries a maximum sentence of five years, with a 30-day possible jail sentence for public intoxication.
