NEW LONDON A New London man has been charged with burglarizing his mother's home and is accused of stealing her computer.
Kyle S. Puder, 24, of 145 High St., has been in custody at the Huron County Jail on burglary, a third-degree felony, since Tuesday unable to post a $10,000 bond. If convicted, he faces one to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
The suspect admitted to the offense during an interview with authorities. "He said he needed money," New London Police Chief Mark Holden said.
Shortly after agents with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation processed the victim's home Monday night, the Elyria Police Department stopped Puder in connection with various traffic violations.
"I don't think they charged him (with anything). They got calls he was running red lights and driving recklessly," Holden said.
Police, during the traffic stop, recovered the computer belonging to Puder's mother which has been returned, the chief said. Officers also seized a personal check and debit/credit card also belonging to the victim and suspected of being stolen.
