The Wagoner Police Department arrested a man on Wednesday, March 7 wanted in connection with multiple felonies in Tulsa County.

After a search around the town, Marquis Kejuan Weeden, 19, was apprehended by police and taken into custody.

Deputy Chief Tony Ponds reports that Weeden is charged with multiple charges.

Weeden is charged in connection with a string of home burglaries in Tulsa in December of 2011.

According to court records, on July 8, 2009, Weeden was convicted in Tulsa County on a charge of robbery with a firearm and discharging a weapon into a dwelling or public place.

He was found guilty as a youthful offender and sentenced to 15 years in the custody of the Office of Juvenile Affairs.

Ponds said in this case, a bullet fired into a house struck a resident.

On Jan. 25, a bench warrant was issued for Weeden’s arrest for failure to appear. In 2011, Weeden was charged with second-degree burglary, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, unlawful possession of a controlled drug and possession or selling of paraphernalia.

A bench warrant has been issued in this case as well.

In January of this year, he was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute and acquiring proceeds from drug activity.

A bench warrant has also been in issued this case.
