A 19-year-old Sulphur Springs man caught knocking on a window, possibly in an attempt to break into the building, was arrested early Wednesday morning on a criminal trespassing charge, police alleged in arrest reports.
When Sulphur Springs Police officers arrived on North Davis Street, they reported seeing the man, who fit the suspect description inside of a fenced in back yard, where he was standing near the back of the residence, according to arrest reports. A no trespassing sign was posted on the fence, according to police reports. Thus, the man was placed into custody at 4:25 a.m. April 22.
The Sulphur Springs teen allegedly denied attempting to break into the residence. In fact, he claimed to have been invited to the residence by the complainant, police alleged in arrest reports. The complainant, however, denied not only inviting the teen to the residence but also denied knowing the 19-year-old at all, according to arrest reports.
Consequently, the 19-year-old was booked into Hopkins County jail at 5:37 a.m., then released later Wednesday on the charge, according to arrest and jail reports.
