Police Shocked By What They Find When Responding To Home Burglary

On Saturday, Spencer Joshua Peak 21, of 632 John St., was caught around 4:35 a.m. and arrested for breaking into a house, stealing items and sleeping in the garage. He also had a woman sleeping with him in the garage. When found, Peak was in a wicker chair and the woman was lying on the floor on a blanket near a wood stove. Items Peak stole were in his lap. The home's resident said she was upstairs watching television when she went downstairs to the first floor, accidentally kicking an electronic tablet that was on the floor.

She said a glass jar with cash was missing from her living room, while several cabinets were open and her recliner chair had been moved. In addition, she found her back door open and her fire safe on her back porch. Plus, she reported to police that her purse was missing from the kitchen table and her basement door had been forced open. Police said they found a black pry bar at the bottom of the basement stairs. There was also a wicker laundry basket in the middle of the basement floor where numerous copper pipes and fittings were stored in the basket.

Once outside, police found three bottles of alcohol, a partially-eating pudding cup in the grass and multiple footprints on the wooden back porch. The resident said her garage door opener was also missing. Peak is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property, theft, loitering and prowling at night and criminal mischief. His female companion was not charged.

The woman was alerted to the thief when she tripped on a tablet he put on the floor.
