Jonathan Lawson

Purcell Police arrested 32-year-old Shareece Lynn Jackson, of Purcell, Monday in connection with burglary/breaking and entering and vandalism of two businesses here.

Jonathan Lawson, owner of Mid-State Manufactured Housing, told officers when he arrived at work Monday morning he found someone had used a fire extinguisher on his back porch.

Also an unlocked mobile home south of his office had been ransacked. Lawson estimated the damage to be over $1,000.

A Bible left on the back porch had Jackson’s name written in it along with an Oklahoma driver’s license with the same name and various pieces of clothing.

Earlier that morning there was a report of a naked woman near Mid-State. A witness said he gave the woman a blanket and then left to call police.

She was not located at that time.

About two hours later police were called to Steeped and Starched about a burglary in progress.

Police said the suspect also damaged property at the dry cleaners. Owner Melinda Lynn estimated the damage at about $500.

They found the naked woman in a front room.

She was transported to Purcell Municipal Hospital by Wadley’s EMS where a toxicology report came back positive for methamphetamine and cannabis.

She was facing two counts of burglary and two counts of vandalism and was in the McClain County Jail as of press time.
