An 18-year-old Ramsey man was arraigned Nov. 1 in Anoka County District Court on a felony burglary charge.
Jerome Davies Carson was charged with second-degree burglary and will make his next court appearance Dec. 2.
According to the criminal complaint, a Ramsey resident on the 14200 block of Tungsten Street called the Ramsey Police Department Oct. 23 to report that someone had broken into her house and stolen a Playstation 3, a “Grand Theft Auto” video game, three watches and two rings.
She said the garage door, bedroom doors and cabinet drawers, and jewelry box doors that were all closed when she and her son had left the home were now open.
The police investigation led them to Davies, who allegedly told police he entered the home through an unlocked garage door. He allegedly pawned the Playstation 3 and the video game at a Coon Rapids pawn store, which pawn shop records verified happened at 1:27 p.m. that day.
He went to the room to retrieve a stolen watch to give to the police while they were questioning him, according to the complaint.
