HUTCHINSON, Kan. -- A 27-year-old Hutchinson man called police Wednesday to report a burglary at a neighbors home. But as it turns out, he's the one accused in the crime.
Police were called around 10:45 a.m. to the report of a burglary at a home in the 700 block of West 6th Avenue. When they arrived, they found a broken window to the basement of the home and the back door had been kicked in. They also found a boot print and blood inside the residence.
When police made contact with David Wiggs, the one who called in the burglary, he had one of his hands in his pocket. At first, he refused to take it out, but when he did, it was clear that his hand had recently been cut, the Hutch Post reports. They also found blood inside his residence which is located in the same area as the burglary scene.
Wiggs' boots also matched the print found at the burglary scene.
Three packs of cigarettes were taken from the residence, which were found at Wiggs' home, police said. Officers also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Wiggs faces charges of burglary, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal damage to property. He remains jailed on $8,250 bond. He is due back in court on April 16.
