Man accused of prying open door to enter house

A Mitchell man is accused of forcibly entering his ex-girlfriend's home in mid-May and causing damage inside that home.

Bruno Nava-Trujillo, 18, is charged with first-degree burglary, which carries a maximum penalty upon conviction of 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine. According to court documents, Nava-Trujillo pried open the front door of his ex-girlfriend's home and entered to attempt to speak with her. During that time, he was texting her to open "your room door." The ex-girlfriend was in her locked bedroom, court documents state, when she heard noises outside.

An investigation by law enforcement showed the front door was pried open, which Nava-Trujillo confessed to doing during a police interview. Nava-Trujillo also admitted to pulling off the door handle of his ex-girlfriend's bedroom door. He told police he was in the house for about five minutes.
