(Stillwater, Ok.) — Bail has been increased to a total of $65,000 for a 20-year-old Cushing man now accused of committing eight property crimes within two months’ time in Payne County.

In two more cases filed last week, Brandon Windell Hill was charged with stealing a Stillwater woman’s 2015 Chevrolet truck, driving it without a license, and attempting to elude a police officer in the truck from 4th and Mockingbird in Stillwater to 4518 Expo Circle, all on Sept. 5 — when Hill also allegedly stole a Stillwater man’s 2004 Chevrolet Silverado.

Hill has been ordered to appear in court on Oct. 7 when he can seek a preliminary hearing on his vehicle larceny charges.

Hill had already been charged with breaking into a Cushing man’s truck where $4,799 worth of items were reportedly stolen and also burglarizing the man’s wife’s car where nothing was taken, all on Aug. 29. Hill has also been ordered to appear in court on Oct. 7 in those two burglary cases.

Hill had also been charged with breaking into three vehicles in Cushing, a Nissan on Aug. 12, a truck on Aug. 13, and another truck on Aug. 14, court records show. Hill has been ordered to appear in court on Oct. 7 in those three burglary cases.

Hill had already pleaded guilty to breaking into a building in Cushing on July 4 and was scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 4, 2020, but a probation officer has recommended that he be sent to the Regimented Inmate Discipline (RID) boot camp program for young adults, due to his additional burglary charges, court records show.

If convicted in all of his cases, Hill could be incarcerated for as long as 58 years, court records show.
