A suspect who was arrested Thursday for his role in least three southwest Ardmore residential burglaries made his initial court appearance Tuesday. Special District Judge Charles Tate set Tracy Lynn French’s bond at $50,000.


Ardmore police officers arrested the 39-year-old Ardmore resident last week after they recovered a number of stolen items at his Isabel Street residence. Detective Chad Anthony said the recovered property included a large quantity of jewelry, cell phones, cameras, DVD players and DVDs. French was formally charged with second degree burglary and two counts of concealing stolen property.


Authorities linked French to the crimes after an officer lifted one of his fingerprints from a burglary scene. Anthony said French was out on bond and had an outstanding warrant from McCurtain County.


Officers also arrested French’s girlfriend, Glenna Lee Black, 36, after they traced some of the stolen property back to her from a pawn shop. Black has been charged with false declaration of ownership in pawn. Tate set her bond at $1,500.


Anthony said some of the stolen jewelry hasn’t been recovered yet, and officers are unsure of who actually owns some of the recovered property. He urged people to write down the serial numbers of their property. Other items can be photographed for record-keeping.


“It makes it much easier to identify stolen property and link it up with its rightful owners,” he said.
