STILLWATER — A Cushing man was arraigned Monday on a felony charge accusing him of breaking into a garage three blocks from his residence, from which stolen fishing equipment was allegedly recovered.

Myron Mark Henness, 45, appeared in court without an attorney Monday before Special District Judge Michael Stano, who ordered him to return on Sept. 12 with an attorney.

Henness could receive as much as a seven-year prison term if convicted of second-degree burglary, according to the charge filed by Payne County prosecutor Tom Lee. Henness remains free on $5,000 bail.

Cushing Police Officer Bill McCarty wrote in an affidavit that he was investigating the theft of a bike in the area of 9th and Little Street on July 29, when he learned that Henness had been seen in the area when a burglary occurred at 1102 S. Little on July 13.

Fishing poles and a large tackle box were taken in that burglary, according to McCarty’s affidavit.

Henness allegedly admitted to the Cushing officer that he had taken the fishing equipment, which Henness retrieved from a closet in his apartment at 1428 S. Little, the affidavit said.
