Edmond Police Department arrested two burglary suspects Tuesday night. Kevin Bottler, 31, and Ryan Gattenby, 23, were taken into custody when officers discovered their vehicle full of stolen property, said Jenny Wagnon, Edmond Police spokeswoman.
“One of the defendants agreed to be driven around by our officers and show him where they committed auto burglaries overnight. They hit cars in Copperfield, Parklane and Chisolm Lake and then possibly went west in OKC jurisdiction,” Wagnon said.
Wagnon said that one of the defendants said during his arrest “Why bother with locked cars when there’s so many unlocked.”
Five burglary victims have been identified by police. All of the victims left their vehicles unlocked.
The police report for this incident was not complete Wednesday afternoon, Wagnon said.
