(STILLWATER, OK) –On Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at 10:14 p.m. Stillwater PD officers were dispatched to the Holiday Inn Express at 700 E. Krayler in reference to a recovery of a stolen vehicle.

An employee at the hotel observed a male in a gray Ford Ranger pickup in the parking lot acting suspicious. It was discovered that the truck had been reported stolen from Kay County. Witnesses said the male subject was attempting to get into other vehicles on the property and an employee contacted police. The suspect left the property walking westbound prior to officers’ arrival.

The suspect, later identified as 30-year-old. Toby Leclair, of Ponca City was located on the south side of Aspen Coffee at 1908 N. Perkins Road.

Great work by the vigilant employee and SPD officers.
