(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Cushing man — who was already on probation for breaking into a business at 4001 N. Little in 2012 — has been placed on five years’ probation for breaking into a house in the 4400 block of N. Little where $1,000 in cash and items were taken in April.

Colton Dwayne Molloy, 25, who had pleaded guilty, was given a five-year suspended sentence Friday by Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler, who ordered him to have a mental health evaluation, perform any recommended follow-up, do 50 hours of community service and pay $400 in fines and assessments.

In a background report compiled for the judge, Molloy said he dropped out of Cushing High School in the 10th grade and was sent to the Thunderbird Youth Academy in Pryor where he graduated in 2007.

Molloy said that he was fired from Submersible Pumps Inc. a couple of times and now works for another Cushing business.

“Mr. Molloy stated that before his arrest, he was hanging out with some bad people, but that he is trying to change that and wants to start attending church again,” the report said.

Molloy was arrested at his home on the evening of the burglary, Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Bobby Miller wrote in an affidavit.

Two men said that as they pulled up to the residence where the burglary occurred, they saw the east shop door ajar and witnessed “Colton Molloy run from the shop toward the truck at the north gate,” the affidavit said.

“At the gate, they got a better look at Mr. Molloy and positively identified Mr. Molloy as the one that came out of the shop. Both knew him because they worked together before,” the affidavit said.

“Found between the residence and shop was a black gym type bag that contained approximately $1,000 worth of money and other items,” confirmed as taken from the residence or shop, the affidavit said.

Thirteen months before that residential burglary, Molloy was placed on four years’ probation under a deferred sentence for breaking into a building owned by JTL Corporation at 4001 N. Little in Cushing, and also possessing two road signs stolen from the intersection of Battle Ridge Road and Eseco Road, court records show.

In court Friday, the judge ruled that Molloy had violated his probation in that 2012 case and placed him on a concurrent five years of probation under a suspended sentence, court records show.
