Burglar smashes into Breckenridge schoolhouse

BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado “-A man discovered asleep in the Little Red School House on Friday morning in Breckenridge, Colorado was charged with two counts of burglary and felony criminal mischief, according to Breckenridge Police Department.

Nicholas James Curiazza, 24, was arrested at the school house at 600 Reiling Road, where the front door had been smashed in.

“He’d laid down on the couch and had fallen asleep,” said Breckenridge assistant chief Greg Morrison.

Officers received the call while investigating a burglary at a residence at 201 Royal Tiger Road, where the front door and several windows had been broken.

Morrison said it appeared the person first tried to enter the home through the windows, but when that didn’t work, the culprit went for the door.

Footprints matching Curiazza’s shoes were found at the residence, and pieces of glass found in his clothing also matched that of the residence.

At both locations, the damage totaled more than $1,000.

“In the residence, lamps and furniture were broken,” Morrison said, adding that the property manager is checking with the Houston homeowners to determine whether anything was stolen.

Curiazza was lodged in the Summit County Jail and also charged with violation of bond conditions. He was out on bond from a Nov. 21 burglary arrest at Keystone Resort.

Officers received the call regarding the residence at 6:48 a.m. Friday, after a snowplow contractor plowing the driveway noticed the front door opened and damaged.
