The burglary occurred in mid-November at a residence in the area of Chilcutt Road, which resulted in the homeowner reporting several thousands of dollars worth of items stolen.

Further search of the property resulted in additional stolen items being found from the burglary in the Chilcutt Road area.

Howard faces the following criminal charges: aggravated burglary, burglary, theft over $2,500, tampering with evidence, possession of Methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
