(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Mustang man, who is serving an eight-year prison term for violating the probationary part of his sentence in a 2012 Oklahoma County robbery case, has been given a concurrent two years of incarceration for stealing an iPhone at the Cimarron Casino in Perkins in 2020.
Timothy Ryan Cole Reid, 29, also known as Timothy Daniel Reid, pleaded guilty on March 2 to the Perkins cell phone theft that was investigated by Iowa Tribe Police Officer Treasure Smith, court records show.
Reid was ordered by Payne County Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler to pay $265 in restitution and to serve one year of probation after his release from prison.
A customer at the casino had said that someone stole her cell phone and keys after she set them down beside her at a slot machine on Jan. 4, 2020, an affidavit said.
A security supervisor at the casino reported that a review of video surveillance showed a man re-entered the casino and put the keys on a chair before leaving, the affidavit said.
The suspect, later identified as Timothy Reid, had gone to the Players’ Club to get a player’s card, the affidavit said.
The victim contacted the Iowa Tribe Police Department four days later to report she was able to log into “find my phone,” which was plotting at 111 E. State Highway 152 in Mustang, the affidavit said.
A Mustang police sergeant, who said 111 E. State Highway 152 is a parking lot with few businesses, contacted several individuals there, but did not find Reid or the stolen iPhone, the affidavit said.
The Iowa tribe officer said in the affidavit “On Jan. 5, (2020), I compared the photographs provided by surveillance to the photograph on Timothy Reid’s identification card, and I confirm he is the suspect based on physical description.” Reid was arrested on May 19, 2020, in the Perkins phone theft, court records show.
According to the state Department of Corrections, Reid had gotten out of prison in 2016 after serving about four years of a five-year sentence for robbery with an imitation firearm in Oklahoma City in 2012. Reid also served about two years of a concurrent five-year prison term for conspiring with two others to commit the robbery.
After being released from prison, Reid began serving 10 years of probation in his Oklahoma County robbery case, but when he failed to pay court costs, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest in June of 2018, court records show.
Reid was sent back to prison on Aug. 14, 2020, to serve eight years for violating his probation in that 2012 Oklahoma County robbery case, state Department of Corrections records show.
