A woman faces Grand Larceny and Conspiracy charges in the aftermath of a 2021 incident at the Mustang Lowe’s.
Heather Desirae Short was identified as the suspect in a larceny at Mustang Lowe’s by an Asset Protection Associate after the larceny that took place on Sunday, Aug. 15. In a Police Affidavit completed by Kevin Connolly, he said he was dispatched after the larceny had taken place where he met the Asset Protection Associate.
The associate identified two suspects, Short and Joseph Guidry and said that an incident in Moore and posts on Facebook Marketplace showed tools used had labels with store numbers. The APA determined the Mustang Lowe’s was missing some of those items.
The APA looked at video footage and determined how the suspects pulled off the crime.
Both suspects entered the store at different times. Short selected items while Guidry left the store. When Short left without paying, she met Guidry at a gray Lincoln Sedan in the parking lot, loaded the items and left.
Items stolen from the store exceeded $1,000. The crime is a felony offense.
The vehicle was purchased, and had the hard plate on the Lincoln Sedan removed. Guidry had a paper license plate affixed to the back of the vehicle, which concealed the vehicle’s true registered owner.
Officers arrested Short and Guidry for being involved in larcenies in Cleveland County. Connolly’s probable cause affidavit indicates the larcenies in Moore/Norman and Mustang took place in different counties, were within 30 days of each other and were part of the same scheme, pattern or adventure.
Canadian County District Attorney, Mike Fields, said Short committed Grand Larceny, which is a felony punishable by two years in a state penitentiary, one year in the county jail, up to a $1,000 fine or both punishments.
He said Short also committed Conspiracy, punishable for up to 10 years in prison, up to a $5,000 fine or both.
Fields also said the crimes were done in concert with Guidry, who was charged with conspiracy from the same Mustang incident according to the Oklahoma State Courts Network. These documents were filed May 27, 2022.
