The Belton Police Department has arrested an 18-year-old Belton man and charged him with burglary of a building.
At about 5:48 a.m. on Aug. 7, Belton police responded to a call about a burglary in progress in the 400 block of E. 13th Ave. The victim described seeing a man, later identified as Mr. Drake, inside a storage building with property in his hands. Mr. Drake dropped the items and left on foot, but officers were able to locate him in the area.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
