Edmond man faces arson, VPO violation complaints

EDMOND — A local man faces several complaints after he allegedly told residents their yard was on fire and fought with an officer in the middle of an Edmond street, an incident report stated.

Early Sunday morning, he was dispatched to a call about a possible victim’s protection order violation in the 3000 block of Hunter’s Creek Road, Police Officer Jason Carroll stated in his report.

Carroll stated he was familiar with the suspect from multiple previous encounters, and he knew the victims had requested extra watches because the suspect continued to show up after being served with a VPO.

Officer Brenton Brown encountered the suspect carrying a gasoline can in the 2000 block of North Kelly several hours earlier, Carroll stated. The suspect told Brown he was going to put fuel in a friend’s vehicle, Carroll stated.

At about 4:43 a.m. Sunday, he arrived at the home and extinguished flames from a burning gasoline can standing on the yard, several trees and small parts of the yard, Carroll stated.

In an affidavit of probable cause filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court, Edmond Police Detective Marion Cain stated he spoke with the victims who said an unknown person awoke them and told them their lawn was on fire.

In home surveillance video, a white male is seen indiscriminately throwing an unknown liquid on a vehicle, Cain stated. The victims and officers who viewed the video identified the suspect as Shawn Michael Crail, 32, of Edmond, Cain stated.

Each victim had filed VPOs against the suspect finalized last month.

A short time later, the suspect was located by Officer Joseph Wells near the victims’ neighborhood, Cain stated. When Wells attempted to detain the suspect, he became combative and was taken into custody with physical force, Cain stated.

At the city jail, a box cutter, pocket knife and a lighter were found on the suspect, and his clothes had a strong odor of gasoline on or about them, Cain stated. The suspect did not wish to speak at that time, Cain stated.

Investigators found possible pour patterns on the driveway toward vehicles parked close to the garage, on an SUV parked there and on the lawn, Cain stated. Also on the lawn was burned object resembling a red plastic gas can, Cain stated.

There was a strong odor of gasoline on or about the vehicle, other portions of the yard and the burned gas can, Cain stated.

Cain stated he believes sufficient probable cause exists for the filing of two counts of violation of a VPO, two counts of third-degree arson, one count of fourth-degree arson and one count of obstructing an officer.

On Jan. 15, Crail pleaded guilty to a felony assault and battery upon a police officer charge stemming from an Edmond Police Department case, according to court records. The same day he pleaded guilty to a felony concealing stolen property charge filed in 2008 stemming from an EPD case.
