Marathon – A Marathon man who broke into a trailer while the owner was gone, and appears to have lived there for several months was arrested Tuesday.
The victim has another residence in Naples. She said she had been gone since November and returned in January to find someone had apparently been living in her trailer on 47th Street. Deputy Anthony O’Dea responded to the trailer to take a burglary report. He found evidence someone broke in through a back window.
Inside, the owner said she found CDs and DVDs that weren’t hers, bottles of liquor in the freezer that weren’t hers, used condoms in the trash and numerous other items belonging to someone else. She said when she got her water and electric bills, they were much higher than they would normally be.
A couple of days after making the initial report of burglary, the victim called again. She told Deputy O’Dea a man had come to her door yelling for someone named “Kenny”.
Fingerprints were obtained from numerous areas inside the trailer. A Sheriff’s Office Fingerprint / Identification technician examined the prints and was able to identify some of them as belonging to a Marathon resident with a history of burglary, 20 year old Kenneth White. A warrant was issued for White’s arrest. On Tuesday, he was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft. He was booked into jail. His bond is set at $10,000.00.
