Dixon, IL. (WQAD) — A Dixon guy is in jail after police say he terrorized a couple of Dixon, Illinois house owners after breaking into their residence, drinking alcohol, and getting naked. June 6, Dixon Police were advised about an undesirable person at a house inside the two hundred blocks of South Dement Avenue. On the way to the residence, officials warned that the burglar became bare and held a fireplace poker.
The guy became recognized as Joel E. Gartman of Dixon, fifty-two.
Gartman was at once removed from the house, and research started.
According to police, Gartman broke in by tearing the screen and forcing open a window at the rear of the house. After getting into the house, Gartman unscrewed mild bulbs and took off his footwear. While inside, Gartman stole at least three alcoholic beverages from the fridge and walked throughout the house, consuming them.
One of the house’s residents changed into slumbering on a sofa on the first floor.
Gartman eliminated all his garments and sat beside the napping owner while retaining a hearth poker.
The homeowner awoke, found out what was happening, and ran upstairs to wake the other resident. A quick time later, each owner came downstairs again and confronted Gartman, who remained in the residence trying to hide.
Joel E. Gartman, age fifty-two, of Dixon, Illinois, turned in charged with residential burglary (magnificence one legal), criminal trespass to residence (class 4 criminal), criminal harm to property (magnificence a misdemeanor), robbery (magnificence a misdemeanor) and a pair of counts of disorderly conduct, (magnificence c misdemeanor).
