Burglary in Lorado

A man from the Robinette area was arrested recently after he allegedly broke into a home and took medications and a firearm.

On May 13, Deputy R.L. Johnson with the Logan County Sheriff’s Department (LSCD) was called to the Lorado area for a breaking and entering complaint. Upon his arrival in the Davey Branch area of Lorado, Johnson reports he was able to make contact with the victim who stated to him they had been gone the previous day and didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary until they were getting ready for bed May 13. The victim reportedly stated to Johnson that all of their medication had gone missing as well as a .22 caliber rifle from her living room.

While he was at the scene, Johnson reports the victim received a phone call from their son who stated he had located the rifle. The victim’s son further stated he had been making phone calls and discovered their neighbor had bought the gun.

Johnson reports he spoke with the neighbor who informed him the gun was purchased from Willard Richard Mosely II, 35, of Robinette. In his criminal complaint, Johnson states, “The rifle was taken into my possession and transported to the LCSD to be securely placed into evidence.”

Mosely was subsequently arrested and charged a felony count of daytime burglary without breaking and a misdemeanor count of petit larceny. If Mosely is found guilty on both counts, he count be forced to spend between two and 11 years in a state correctional facility or pay up to $2,500 in fines or both. Bond was set to $2,500.
