A man claiming to be traveling across several states was arrested yesterday morning on Canton Street for breaking into an unoccupied home.
The ECC received a call of a black male wearing dark pants and a dark jacket breaking into 2716 Canton around 11am, with officers reportedly finding 59-year old Bennie Barrow of the city at large coming from the residence when they arrived.
The report says Barrow admitted to breaking in the home and said he believes he owns it, according to “94 of the Bible.”
The owner of the residence, 29-year old Josh Shimone of Wisconsin, told police that no one had permission to be inside. Barrow reportedly told officers that he was traveling from Alabama to Maryland. He was arrested and charged with 2nd degree burglary.
