A 21-year-old Ketchikan man faces burglary, theft, trespass and drug charges after allegedly breaking into a Denali Avenue home sometime Sunday night or early Monday morning, taking cash and other items, and breaking into a car.
According to the complaint filed in court by Ketchikan Police Officer Devin Miller, a resident of the home called to report that someone had broken in while she and her children were sleeping. That person went through her kitchen and living room. She reported that about $200 cash was missing.
Miller writes that he searched the area and found the defendant sleeping in a car that belongs to the victim’s neighbor. The man did not have permission to be in the vehicle.
Miller writes that the man was found with items belonging to the first victim, including two iPhones, jewelry, car keys, cash, and a bottle of prescription medication. The man also allegedly had items belonging to the neighbor who owns the vehicle he was sleeping in.
The man was charged with felony burglary, and misdemeanor charges for theft, trespass and drugs. He had his first court appearance Monday afternoon.
