11/17/2022 • Via OPD: The Owasso Police Department is investigating a series of break-ins at area apartment complexes, with the most recent occurring at the Villas at Bailey Ranch on the morning of Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at 7:45 am. In that incident, the female victim reported that she was asleep in her bedroom when she awoke to find an adult male standing over her bed with his pants pulled down. The suspect fled and the victim called 911. Officers saturated the area within minutes, but the suspect was not located.
On November 17th, 2022, OPD released suspect images from video footage gathered from area security cameras. Based on those images, a suspect was identified as David Anthony Ward Jr., age 23, of Owasso. Detectives interviewed Mr. Ward this afternoon and developed probable cause to place him under arrest for First Degree Burglary. Because Ward is Native American, charges will be pursued in federal/tribal court.
OPD would like to express our sincere thanks to the community for their assistance and continued support in this very serious matter. We encourage anyone with information that might assist investigators to contact the OPD tip line at 918-272-COPS.
