Four Arrested in Rogers Co. Home Invasion, Pursuit
Four suspects are in custody in the Rogers County Jail following a home invasion, robbery and pursuit late Sunday night.
At 11:03 p.m., Rogers County deputies were made aware of a home invasion and robbery with a firearm in the Oologah/Talala area. The suspects allegedly stole guns and prescription drugs from the home.The Rogers County Sheriff's Office said an 87-year-old man lives at the home. A 37-year-old woman was there at the time too. A different woman had stopped by the home Monday to check on the man and told us it was the 37-year-old woman that let the suspects in because she though she knew them.
Deputies said the victims gave a very detailed description of the suspects, who reportedly drove onto Highway 169 southbound after the robbery.
A nearby Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper was made aware of the situation, and quickly caught up with the vehicle. The vehicle led troopers on a pursuit, and eventually the suspects ditched the car and took off running on foot.
Deputies believe there were five people in the car, two males and three females, and four have been arrested so far. The names of those arrested Abeline Dover, Nikolaus Cooley, Dmitry Kopytin and Toni Trail.
Deputies are searching for the fifth person in the vehicle, who is believed to be a female.
It is not clear yet whether the victims and the suspects knew each other, deputies said. It is believed the firearm the suspects reportedly used during the robbery was an airsoft gun.
The investigation is ongoing.
