(Stillwater, Okla.) -- A Cushing man who as a teenager spent six months in the state prison system's boot camp program for a Cushing crime wave was given a six-year prison term Friday for possessing marijuana while on probation.
Phillip Anthony Wright, 21, who accepted a plea bargain for his latest felony, also had his probation revoked Friday in five property crimes in Cushing in 2009.
Three years ago, Wright broke into two cars on Aug. 17, another car on May 16, a residence on Aug. 8, and a car on Aug. 15.
Wright also entered property with intent to steal copper wire stored in a bed of a vehicle owned by Buckles Electric and possessed that stolen copper, both of Aug. 15, 2009.
In his latest case, Wright was arrested by Cushing Police Officer Jerrod Livergood in the parking lot of Bill's EZ Out at 1107 E. Main Street about 8:20 p.m. Feb. 20, court records show.
The officer had noticed a GMC Jimmy pulling into the parking lot and spotted an occupant that he thought was possibly Wright, who had multiple arrest warrants from Payne County, an affidavit said.
"While conducting a pat search on Phillip after the arrest, I located the small burnt hand-rolled cigarette in a cellophane plastic wrapper in his front right small pocket," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
A field test showed that it contained marijuana, the affidavit said.
