Summerville was arrested last week following an investigation by Durant Police Lt. Brad Nelson who responded to an automobile burglary at 600 Montgomery Drive. William Morton, the victim, said he went to his vehicle that morning and noticed the glove box torn off, a stereo missing, plus a speaker box.
A maintenance worker told Nelson he found a car stereo on a stairwell, and upon retrieving it from the office, the victim identified it as his.

Nelson went to the apartment and talked to a woman and a man identified as Summerville, and the report stated that Nelson saw a speaker box that matched the description of the one stolen, plus other items throughout the apartment believed to have been stolen.
A warrants check revealed that Summerville had a felony warrant for his arrest, so he was arrested.
