A Mitchell man was arrested recently for burglary and petty theft.
Tony Caldwell, 44, allegedly entered his neighbor’s apartment on Aug. 8 when the neighbor was gone. He took a television and pawned it for money.
Three days later, on Aug. 11, Caldwell took a neighbor’s $290 mountain bike and rode it to a store.
He fell off the bicycle before he made it to the store and was placed in jail for a detox hold.
Court documents state Caldwell did not have permission to take either the TV or the bike.
The burglary charge carries a maximum of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine. The petty theft charge carries a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
