A 44-year-old man facing charges after a two suspicious incidents at apartment complexes in central Kingston on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018.
At approximately 7:30 a.m., a resident arrived at the parking garage for her building on Wright Crescent and noticed the main door wasn’t functioning correctly. When she entered the garage, she found a man who was holding a caulking gun, who she believed had no business being in the facility. The resident suggested that the man be on his way, and he complied, according to a press release from Kingston Police. Before the man left, however, the resident was able to take a photograph of the man.
When the resident inspected the garage doors, she noticed there was caulking all over the sensors. A maintenance worker arrived later and cleaned up the mess, and nothing else appeared to be tampered with or unusual.
Later the same day, Kingston Police were called to an apartment complex on Van Order Drive at approximately 10:30 a.m. A man at the building was trying to break into mailboxes, according to Kingston Police. Police determined it was the same man from the earlier incident on Wright Crescent, and he was quickly identified by responding officers.
The Kingston man was arrested and charged with break and enter and breach of probation.
