A Mustang man faces potential criminal complaints, after an alleged July 12 burglary that culminated in him threatening to kill a police officer.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jesse Thomas Croisant stands accused of first degree burglary, intimidating or threatening a state witness and public intoxication. Those complaints came after dispatchers directed Mustang officer Seth Roecker to a residence in the 600 block of West Greenwood Court.

There, Roecker stated in his initial report, he saw a broken front screen door at a residence; the officer also saw a man sitting on the porch, a man later identified as Croisant, reports showed.

“I made contact with the individual; he was extremely erratic and uncooperative,” Roecker stated.

After detaining the 38-year-old, Roecker said he continued his investigation, learning Croisant allegedly tried to enter the residence while the homeowner was inside – threatening that individual. However, that was not the only threat made during the incident, Roecker said.

“While enroute to the (Canadian County) jail, the subject asked my name and the agency I worked for,” Roecker wrote in his report. “He told me that he was going to remember my name, he further elaborated that he was going to kill me.”

Roecker reported Croisant repeated the death threat two more times during the drive to El Reno.

Croisant has a record in Canadian County District Court, Oklahoma State Courts Network showed.

In 2007 he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was convicted in 2013 of breaking and entering, also a misdemeanor. He received a six-month suspended sentence – with another six months served in Canadian County Jail – for the 2007 conviction and sentenced to 30 days in that jail as part of a one-year suspended sentence in connection with the 2013 case. A 2015 misdemeanor drug possession case was dismissed with costs.

In 2015, prosecutors charged Croisant with misdemeanor domestic abuse upon a pregnant woman. The Mustang man was ordered to pay costs, fees and restitution in that case.
As of press time, prosecutors had not filed charges against Croisant in connection with the July 12 alleged incident.
