On Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Atoka Police Officer Joe Doshier was dispatched to a residence on West Second Street to investigate a break-in.
When Officer Doshier arrived at the residence a man, identified as Shakodah L. Williams, 21, of Atoka, was standing on the porch.
The officer spoke to the occupant of the home, Casandra Dewbery, who stated she woke up to find Williams inside her home.
Further investigation showed a back window, leading to the kitchen, had a screen torn off.
Dewbery stated she heard dishes clanking together, and thought the noise was from her mother and hollered out to her. Williams answered Dewbery which lead to her confronting him.
Williams told her he was there for his money from mowing the lawn. Dewbery told him to wait outside and she would get his money. As he waited on the porch, Dewbery called the police. The grass had not been mowed, and Dewbery’s mother advised her she did not know the man.
Williams was placed under arrest and transported to the Atoka County Jail for booking. He is charged with burglary in the first degree (felony).
