Man arrested on burglary and weapons charge in California

Everybody should be allowed to tell his or her side of the story. This is particularly true when a person is being accused of a crime. Although the arresting authorities may have a reason to suspect an individual, he or she is legally considered innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. One man will be looking to tell his side of the story following his recent arrest and weapons charge in California.

The man was arrested following a call to the local sheriff's department reporting a burglary at approximately 2:00 a.m. The reporting caller stated that somebody had broken into the residence via an unlocked backdoor. The burglar had reportedly stolen several items prior to leaving. By the time the sheriff's deputies arrived, the burglar had already left the premises.

However, after the authorities made a thorough check and inspection of the scene, the suspect was spotted four houses away from the home that was broken into. The man was apparently breaking into this house as well. The home was later discovered to be the man's own residence where he lived with his father. The deputies had allegedly seen an object shaped like a pistol in the suspect's hand.

Authorities eventually arrested the man after talking him into opening the front door. The man allegedly attempted to resist arrest, according to reports by the police. Regardless of the nature of his crimes, the suspect will have a chance to respond to the weapons charge and other criminal counts against him in the court of law in California. With a strong legal defense, the defendant may be able to have the charges dropped; however, this will ultimately depend upon the strength of his legal argument.
