Cleveland Police Make Arrests In Pharmacy Burglaries
CLEVELAND, Oklahoma - Cleveland Police have arrested two people they believe are connected to two pharmacy burglaries.
Police Chief Clint Stout said a tip came in leading investigators to a home of Catherine Reid, 39, and Jeremy Reid, 41, on the 400 block of West Kiowa in Cleveland.
Investigators served a search warrant at the house and Stout said investigators found stolen prescription medication from Hillcrest Pharmacy in Pawnee, which was burglarized in April.
Stout said investigators also found several items that link the Reids to the March burglary at the Palace Drug Pharmacy. In that case, the pharmacy was set on fire.
Catherine and Jeremy Reid are both facing charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of stolen property charges.
Stout said Jeremy Reid was also booked on an obstruction complaint. Stout said Jeremy Reid told investigators he had more information, but refused to give that information to police unless he could stay home with his wife and children for a few more days.
DHS took the Reid’s 14-year-old and 17-year-old children. Stout said the teenagers will be placed in the custody of a family member.
Stout said it’s likely more charges will be added, including burglary and arson. He also said the Reids' vehicle matches the vehicle used in in a burglary at a Drumright pharmacy.
Stout said Catherine Reid has an open case out Payne County where she’s accused of forging prescriptions.
