On Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at 10:14 p.m. Stillwater PD officers were dispatched to the Holiday Inn Express at 700 E. Krayler in reference to a recovery of a stolen vehicle.

According to the report from Stillwater Police, an employee at the hotel observed a male in a gray Ford Ranger pickup in the parking lot acting suspicious. It was discovered that the truck had been reported stolen from Kay County. Witnesses said the male subject was attempting to get into other vehicles on the property and an employee contacted police. The suspect left the property walking westbound prior to officers’ arrival.

The suspect, later identified as 30-year-old. Toby Leclair, of Ponca City was located on the south side of Aspen Coffee at 1908 N. Perkins Road. Leclair was in possession of a backpack and after further investigation officers located a stolen laptop and a loaded firearm in his bag. The backpack containing the laptop was stolen from a vehicle in the parking lot of Texas Roadhouse. Leclair was still in possession of the keys to the stolen Ford Ranger.

Great work by the vigilant employee and SPD officers.

This is an arrest, not a conviction.

Leclair was arrested for:

Possession of a stolen vehicle
Knowingly concealing stolen property
Burglary in the third degree
Possession of a firearm after former felony conviction
Possession of a firearm while committing a felony
