2 charged in Stoops burglary

NORMAN — The man and a male juvenile who allegedly burglarized the home of University of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops were charged together Monday in Cleveland County District Court.

Corey Jamal McCarty, 21, of Oklahoma City, was charged in concert and together with an unnamed juvenile for first-degree burglary, larceny of a vehicle and two counts of unauthorized use of a credit card.

The charges filed said the two entered Stoops’ home by forcibly entering through a side door the morning of June 19 while the family was sleeping. Items stolen from the home included cash, a phone, credit cards and keys, according to the affidavit filed with the charges.

Using one of the stolen keys, the two allegedly stole an SUV parked in front of the residence, which was recovered about 20 hours after the incident, court records show.

Video surveillance at Stoops’ home recorded the two young males allegedly committing the crime. Area businesses with video surveillance also showed the same suspects attempting to use the stolen credit cards to purchase items, the affidavit said.

The purchases attempted by the two included gasoline and cigarettes at the 7 Eleven at 36th Avenue and Rock Creek Road and an XBox at a Walmart in Cleveland County, the charges stated. Both attempted purchases were under $500, therefore filed as misdemeanors.

Around 2 a.m. Saturday, Norman Detective Corey Lambrecht received a call from Oklahoma City police that they had detained McCarty while breaking up a party. The police also told the Norman detective they were told by a source that McCarty and his friend were discussing the incident at the party, the affidavit said.

A Norman patrol officer then transported McCarty to the Norman Police Department where he was interviewed after he waived his Miranda rights, records show.

“McCarty was polite and cooperative,” the affidavit said.

He confessed to entering the victims’ home and taking the property and vehicle with an associate. He also admitted he was the one who swiped the victims’ bank card at the area business in a purchase attempt, the document states.

“McCarty was apologetic, stating he meant no harm to the victims’ family and that this incident was not his idea,” the affidavit said.
