Suspect charged in home burglary

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

A nearby residemt has been charged with stealing items from an Old Unionville Road home, according to a Bedford County detective.

Kenneth Arthur Hoffman, 45, of River Ranch Road, allegedly took a large-screen television, DVD/VCR player and briefcase on Aug. 31 or Sept. 1, said Detective Chad Webster of the Bedford County Sheriff's Department.

The door was forced and the frame and knob were also damaged, a report by Deputy Trey Green said.

Webster said he was reviewing tickets from a Shelbyville pawn shop and discovered one matching the description of the missing television. A check with the store confirmed it was the television in question, Webster said.

Hoffman told Webster he had traded the DVD/VCR player, which has not been recovered, for crack cocaine.

Charges of aggravated burglary, theft of property over $1,000 and vandalism were filed against Hoffman, who is being held at Bedford County Jail on $21,000 bond.
