Two arrests made in Stoops home burglary case

A suspect in the home burglary of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops was arrested early Saturday morning after discussing the incident at a party, according to the Norman Police Department.

Corey McCarty, 21, was detained when Oklahoma City police were breaking up a party, according to McCarty then waived his Miranda rights and confessed. Another suspect was arrested but a name was not released because the suspect is believed to be a juvenile. McCarty was charged with stolen property, larceny of a motor vehicle and use of a stolen credit card.

The home was broken into Wednesday while the family was asleep. No one was hurt, but a vehicle and cash were stolen. Norman police released video footage footage of two people suspected in the break-in.

A police source told Thursday that they believed the intruders are assumed to be people who have been working construction or other jobs around the house. The source said the alarm to the house was not set and the security gate was opened and the suspects came in wearing masks.
