(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Cushing woman remained jailed on $5,000 bail Monday on a felony charge alleging she burglarized an unoccupied residence in the 400 block of E. Broadway in Cushing.
If convicted of second-degree burglary, Delaney June Nadell, 45, could be imprisoned for two to seven years and fined $10,000 She has been ordered to appear in court on Tuesday with an attorney.
Cushing Police Officer Jerrod Livergood was sent at 7:08 p.m. on Aug. 1 to the 400 block of E. Cherry Street “in reference to a disturbance where an elderly couple was fighting with a younger female,” according to his affidavit.
“I observed an individual I knew to be Delaney Nadell from multiple previous contacts sitting on the curb crying,” the officer wrote in his affidavit filed last week.
A man told the Cushing officer that he stores items at the unoccupied residence in the 400 block of E. Broadway, the affidavit alleged.
The man said that he saw Nadell walk empty-handed across the alley into the enclosed backyard of that residence, and a few minutes later walk away from the property with bags that he knew were previously inside the unoccupied residence, the affidavit alleged.
Both the man and the property owner said that they wanted to file charges on Nadell for the burglary, the affidavit alleged.
“Nadell was mumbling and not making many complete sentences while sitting on the curb. Nadell said, ‘it was open. I was looking for my phone’ multiple times while I tried to speak to her,” the officer alleged in his affidavit.
Nadell’s husband arrived and tried to calm her down, the affidavit alleged.
When the officer asked her if he could look inside the green bag she was carrying, Nadell agreed, the affidavit alleged. “I pulled out a white table cloth with unique embroidering all over it,” that the man said was stolen from the residence, the officer alleged in his affidavit.
“I also located a large commercial roll of paper towels inside the bag,” both of which the man said were taken from the residence, the officer alleged in his affidavit.
“I could see inside of another brown bag that was in Nadell’s possession and observed the top of a wooden chest,” which the man advised had also been taken from the residence, the officer alleged in his affidavit.
“I removed the item and found it to be a wine holder with yellow painted designs and a $10 price tag attached,” the officer alleged in his affidavit.
The man said “some of the items in the residence have been marked for a yard sale previously,” the affidavit alleged.
