Stratford Police Officer Michael Lewis was in the right place at the right time on Sunday, July 22.
While on patrol in the 300 block of Jan drive at around 10:00 p.m. a man flagged down Lewis and told him there were lights going on and off in a vacant house next door.
Lewis went to the residence to investigate and when he pulled up to the residence he saw a juvenile female and one adult man running from the house.
Lewis quickly caught and detained the female and also arrested one juvenile male at the residence.
Chief Scott Collier and Lewis took both juveniles to the Stratford Police Department where they called the parents of both juveniles.
Once the parents arrived at the police department both officers began questioning the juveniles.
The juveniles told Collier and Lewis that it was 21-year old Glyson Nixon that Lewis had seen running from the residence.
Nixon is on probation from a 2010 felony charge for possession of child pornography.
After officers were done questioning the juveniles they were released to their parents. Both were charged with 2nd degree burglary.
On Monday, July 23, officers contacted Nixon’s brother, informing him of the situation and that they needed to speak with Glyson.
The brother was very helpful and 15 minutes after speaking with the officers Glyson Nixon showed up at the Stratford Police Department.
While questioning Nixon he confessed he was the one Lewis saw running from the house the night before and that he did break into the house with the two juveniles.
Nixon was arrested and charged with breaking and entering with unlawful intent, contributing to the delinquency of minors and obstructing a police officer.
Nixon’s court date is set for September 5 at 1:45 p.m. at the Garvin County Court House.
