Havasu man cited on criminal trespassing charge
Police were dispatched to a Cherry Tree Boulevard residence Thursday morning after receiving reports of an attempted burglary.
According to the police report, a man later identified as 22-year-old Dylan J. Weldon scaled a block wall surrounding the victim’s back yard, and attempted to enter the home through a rear sliding door. The homeowner allegedly confronted Weldon, and threatened to shoot him if he didn’t leave.
Officers encountered Weldon at shortly after 2 a.m. According to the report, Weldon said he was dropped off at a house party, and had been drinking that evening. He was trying to find his way home, and didn’t recall attempting to enter a stranger’s home, Weldon allegedly said. According to the police report, Weldon appeared to be highly intoxicated when officers contacted him.
According to the police report, police photographed Weldon with a mobile phone, and showed the image to the alleged victim. The victim positively identified Weldon as the would-be burglar, the police report said.
Weldon was cited and released at the scene on charges of first degree criminal trespassing, and is scheduled to appear December 24 in Lake Havasu City Municipal Court.
