Drunken burglar swipes video games in Avon

AVON, Colorado – Police arrested an Avon, Colorado man for driving under the influence and turns out the man was in a stolen car and had stolen several other items from apartments recently, police say.

The man, so drunk he could barely keep his head up, had reportedly gone into an Avon apartment while a resident was asleep, according to a police report.

He entered through a back door with a broken lock, stole a video game system and eight games valued at more than $1,000. He also stole a computer and the set of car keys for the truck he later stole.

Police found out later that the man had gone into another unlocked apartment in Avon a week earlier and stolen a video camera and cell phone. The suspect was drunk during both robberies, according to police reports.

Police aren’t sure whether the man is in the United States legally – he spoke no English and had no identification.
