An Ardmore resident is facing charges after police reportedly connected him with an incident in which deer urine was sprayed on several items of clothing at a local business.

Ardmore Police Department Sgt. Larry Payne said 18-year-old Robert Kevin Schaumann was identified as a suspect in the incident on Oct. 8, 2019. However, police were unable to locate him at the time.

“He was a suspect in it because of how it happened. He left Walmart after they did the damage,” Payne said. “We had surveillance from Walmart and we had identified him at the time, we were just unable to make contact with him. He moves around quite a bit.”

According to Carter County court documents, Schuamann is believed to have destroyed over $1,000 worth of clothing. “Him and several other friends were involved in it, so I don’t know what would make people think they could do that. It’s possible they were intoxicated on something, but I couldn’t tell you,” Payne said.

Payne said police located Schuamann during a separate incident on Jan. 7, 2020. While police were responding to a drive-by shooting in the 500 block of 3rd NW, Schuamann reportedly fled from the residence where the shooting had occurred and led police on a high-speed pursuit.

The pursuit lasted for around four to five minutes, with police reaching speeds near 100 mph, and concluded near Forest Lane. Schuamann was taken into custody for attempting to elude at the time and police said he was not involved in the shooting.

Schuamann is currently facing felony charges for attempting to elude and malicious injury to property over $1,000. His bond is set at $5,000 and an arraignment for both charges is scheduled for March 4.
