Enid police say they arrested a man suspected in a home invasion and robbery after he went to the police station to retrieve the car he abandoned during a chase.

Just after midnight on Monday, July 9, three men with guns kicked open the back door of a house in the 4100 block of S. Van Buren, which is near Vance Air Force Base. Once inside, they held the residents at gunpoint while they stole several items. They then got into a black Pontiac and sped away from the neighborhood.

Police say after calling 911, the homeowner and another resident got into their own car and followed the suspects to a neighborhood near Failing Drive and South Monroe. The three suspects leaped out of the car and ran.

Police searched the area, but couldn't find the suspects. They impounded the suspects' vehicle and took it back to the police station.

A man later arrived at the police department to claim the vehicle. Joseph C. Felton said he owned the car. Police interviewed Felton and determined not only was he the car's owner, he was one of the robbery suspects.

Officers arrested Felton on suspicion of first-degree burglary, and robbery with a firearm. He was booked into the Garfield County Detention Center.

Police are still searching for the other suspects involved in the crime. They urge anyone with information about the case to call Garfield County Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233. Callers can also text information to 274637.
