Man arrested on burglary, drug complaints

Ponca City Now - March 18, 2015 10:22 am

A 56- year-old male resident in the 700 block of West Grand Ave. called the Communications Center, just before midnight to report that he’d been confronted by a man with a gun who had demanded money.

Officers arrived and were told that the victim heard a knock on the front door of his home and he opened it before looking to see who was there.

The victim said the suspect stuck a gun in his face, demanding money from him twice and after being told he had none, the suspect left.

The officer was searching the immediate area for the suspect when the victim placed a second call, at approximately 12:40 a.m., to the Communications Center. This time he reported someone was knocking at his back door.

The next door neighbor was in his garage working on his motorcycle and was visiting with the officer when he overheard the dispatch of the second call. He assisted the officer in locating and detaining 35-year-old Jesse L Trimble III until other officers arrived.

Trimble was arrested on complaints of first-degree burglary and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
