An Apple Valley man faces criminal charges after he allegedly was caught rummaging through belongings in a garage that was not his.
Anthony Gilbert Bloodsaw, 38, of Apple Valley, is charged with burglary and trespassing—a felony and misdemeanor, respectively—after a resident apparently saw Bloodsaw going through items in his garage. The charges hold a maximum penalty of five years, three months in prison and an $11,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, were called to the home on a report that someone had been rummaging in the garage. The homeowners' adult son said he'd gone out to shut the garage door for the evening and saw the man, and tried to catch him, but the man ran away, according to the complaint.
Police spoke with a group of men nearby who said a man matching the description of the rummager had asked them for a cigarette lighter. One of the men called police shortly after and told them a man matching the description was now at an Apple Valley bar, the complaint says.
Police went to the bar and found the man, who was identified as Bloodsaw, according to the complaint.
