Christopher Stubblefield, a sexually violent predator whose residency in the City of Delta prompted two community meetings, was arrested in Grand Junction Sept. 1.
He faces charges of first degree criminal trespass and criminal mischief.
According to the arrest affidavit filed by the Grand Junction Police Department, a witness saw a Hispanic male with a bald head using an object that looked like a broom handle to break a window at a home at 415 Mesa Court. The home was unoccupied and in foreclosure.
In the back yard, officers spotted a cooler against a broken window. As they were looking at the window, a male matching the description provided by the witness appeared in one of the other windows of the home. The officers motioned for him to come outside, but the man walked out of sight.
Additional officers arrived along with a K9 unit. A number of verbal commands were issued with no response. The officers then entered the home and ultimately found Stubblefield in the basement.
There was no obvious damage to the home.
After he had been advised of his rights, Stubblefield told officers he had gone into "somebody's house to find a place to sleep, but did not know whose house it was or how he had accessed it."
Stubblefield was transported to Mesa County Jail where he is being held on a $1,500 bond.blog comments powered by Disqus
