One suspect in the burglary of University of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops' home discussed the incident at an Oklahoma City party before being arrested early Saturday, according to the Norman Police Department.

Police declined to name a second person in custody because that person is a juvenile.

“There may still be others associated with this crime that we haven't arrested,” said Norman police Sgt. Jennifer Newell.

Corey McCarty, whose age was not released, was detained by Oklahoma City police about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to Cleveland County court documents.

He was taken to Norman Police Department, where he waived his Miranda rights and confessed to the crime, the documents state.

McCarty admitted entering the home and taking property and a vehicle with an associate, police said. He was arrested on complaints of burglary, possession of stolen property, unlawful use of a credit card and grand larceny of an automobile.

Stoops' home, 5400 36 Ave. NW, was burglarized early Wednesday while the family slept, police said. No one was hurt during the intrusion.

A vehicle and other smaller items were reported missing from the home, Norman police Lt. Eric Lehenbauer said.

Surveillance footage from the Stoops' home and from a business captured the images of two people suspected in the burglary, which police released Friday to the media.

Norman police said the two tried to use a stolen credit card that was taken during the burglary.

Court documents describe McCarty as polite, cooperative and apologetic. has disabled the comments for this article.
