Arrest Warrant Issued For Teen Accused Of Stillwater Burglary

(Stillwater, Okla.) – An arrest warrant has been issued for a teenager accused of breaking into a Stillwater apartment, while a resident was sleeping, on the Monday after Thanksgiving – less than two weeks after he pleaded guilty to two earlier stolen property charges in Payne County.

Former Stillwater resident Shawn Denervell McIntosh, 19, whose whereabouts are unknown, could be given a prison term of seven to 20 years if convicted of first-degree burglary, according to the felony charge filed last week.

McIntosh was identified as the apartment burglary suspect in part based on his Facebook profile and his photograph in a recent publication of inmates in the Payne County Jail, according to an affidavit by Stillwater Police Officer Justin Reedy.

The officer was sent to an apartment complex in the 1500 block of N. Boomer Road in Stillwater at 9:45 a.m. on Nov. 28, 2016, to talk to an employee/tenant, who said he left his apartment at 7 a.m. to unlock the office, the affidavit said.

He said he ordinarily leaves the front door unlocked when another roommate is home, the affidavit said.

“A while later, one of his roommates called him and asked if he had taken any money from his Mexico Joe’s waiter wallet that was in the living room on the counter,” the affidavit said.

He said that he had not taken anything, but when he went back to the apartment, he “noticed things in his bedroom were in disarray and he noticed numerous items missing,” the affidavit said.

He then “went back to the office and began looking at security video,” that showed about two minutes after he left, a man with a backpack over his shoulder walked into his apartment and left about 34 minutes later with the victim’s backpack and a hat that appeared to be the victim’s, the affidavit said.

The victim said “he is missing a PS4 along with 4-5 games, the Oakley backpack, an iPad, Beats by Dre’ Pro headphones, the OKC Thunder hat and a ESQ stainless steel Swiss watch,” the affidavit said.

His roommate, who was inside asleep in the apartment, gave the officer “the suspect name of Shawn,” and a phone number that he said he was given by a tenant who supposedly knew him, the affidavit said. There was no answer at the telephone number, the affidavit said.

That roommate “provided me with a USB flash drive containing a photo of the suspect exiting his apartment, along with two videos of the suspecting entering and exiting,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.

About a week later, the same officer was sent to another apartment complex in the 1800 block of N. Boomer Road in Stillwater, the affidavit said.

Two men were chasing McIntosh on the north side of the complex to the east into the wooded area north of Cimarron Plaza, the affidavit said.

“While chasing McIntosh, he had taken an iPad and threw it to the ground,” where one of the men picked it up, the affidavit said.

One of the men said “he yelled at McIntosh and McIntosh put his hands in the front of his pants,” in a way that he believed McIntosh was going to pull a gun out so they hid and did not see McIntosh again, the affidavit said.

When the employee/tenant at the apartment in the 1500 block of N. Boomer Road arrived, he positively identified the iPad as his by the serial number, the affidavit said.

Only 12 days earlier, McIntosh had appeared in Payne County District Court on Nov. 16, 2016, and pleaded guilty to knowingly concealing a pickup stolen from a Broken Arrow man, attempting to elude an officer, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, obstructing an officer by wrecking a stolen pickup and running, and possessing a marijuana pipe, all on Oct. 28, 2016, in Stillwater.

That same day, McIntosh also had pleaded guilty in Payne County District Court to concealing stolen property on Sept. 24, 2015, records show.

On his guilty pleas, McIntosh was released from the Payne County Jail on a personal recognizance bond on Nov. 16, 2016, with an order to report to the state Department of Corrections Probation and Parole Office to begin a Delayed Sentencing Investigation for young offenders, court records show.

McIntosh did report on Nov. 21, 2016, and was told to return on Dec. 8, 2016, which he failed to do, according to a report to the court by Probation and Parole Officer Juan Perez.

Attempts to reach McIntosh were unsuccessful, the report said.

“At this point, the whereabouts of Shawn McIntosh are unknown and he is considered an absconder,” who should be sentenced to prison in the Regimented Inmate Discipline program (RID) when arrested, the report said.
