Salina man arrested again

— A Salina man, recently arrested on a weapons charge, has been arrested again, this time for second-degree burglary.

Michael Ivan Vincent, Jr., 45, was arrested Aug. 1 after allegedly breaking into a building owned by Lenora Ofield of Salina. He is being held on a $20,000 bond.

Vincent recently made news in July when he was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm after the former conviction of a felony (AFCF).

According to an earlier article, Mayes County Sheriff’s investigators were tracking the whereabouts of a .357 Ruger handgun that had reportedly been traded for drugs.

In the probable cause affidavit, Ron Young of Salina told investigators that Vincent had shown him the handgun and asked if he would take it in trade for pills.

Because witnesses placed the gun in Vincent’s possession during the incident, he was charged with possession of a firearm.

In 2008, Vincent was convicted of first-degree burglary after breaking into the residence of Dusty and Ronald Cox.

He was sentenced to 10 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, all but six months were suspended. Those six months were to be served in the Mayes County Jail.

However, according to court documents, Vincent was released from jail after 30 days “upon request of sheriff and by agreement of the state.”

In addition to the new burglary charge, a habitual punishment form was also filed in court. It highlights the original burglary conviction and gives information as to the sentencing plea agreement.

Vincent is expected back in court on Aug. 29, on the weapons charge and Sept. 12, on the second-degree burglary charge.
