(BRYAN COUNTY, Okla.) Former Achille mayor David Shane Northcutt, 42, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the burglary of the Achille Police Department evidence room. Northcutt was arrested in Durant by the Durant Police Department around 12:30 Wednesday afternoon. He was taken into custody on one count of Grand Larceny and one count of False Declaration of Ownership in Pawn, both of which are felonies. Northcutt is currently in the Bryan County Jail being held on a $10,000 bond. Several items were missing from the evidence room, including guns, drugs and cash, after a break-in occurred in the early morning hours of March 18, 2019. The day after the break-in, District Attorney Emily Redman requested OSBI assistance with the investigation into the burglary. The OSBI Crime Scene Unit processed the evidence room, which is located at City Hall in the 200 block of Main Street. During the course of the investigation, agents interviewed multiple people, including the former mayor. Northcutt eventually confessed that he used a key to unlock the evidence room door. The OSBI would like to thank the Durant Police Department for their assistance in arresting Northcutt.
