A man with an extensive criminal record has been picked up again - this time for "moving in" a vacant house on the Southside.

Rickey Euden Carter, 50, is charged with aggravated burglary, vandalism and theft.

Police said they received a call from the property manager for 1723 Read Ave., saying a black male and white female were at the older frame house without permission.

Carter approached police, saying he had permission from the owner to stay at the house. He said he was homeless and had been living there for a week or two. He said the white female had just come for a visit.

Carter said all of his belongings were in the front bedroom of the house and his bicycle was in a hallway.

He said he had noticed that copper was missing from the bathroom and kitchen, but he denied taking it.

Rudolph Foster said he had checked the residence a couple of weeks earlier and the copper was intact. Since then, he said, about $2,000 worth of copper was removed.

Marilyn Thomas said her father, Edward Thomas, had owned the house. He died in August 2011 and the house was passed to her.

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email. These funnies, and other pertinent information, are sent to me by a myriad of “Internet Buddies” who I repay by sending out some of the funniest that I collect. Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
