Burglary victim provides information that leads to arrest


The victim of an alleged residential burglary Tuesday contacted police after she received information that a man was trying to sell items taken from her house, and police reported that they found the stolen items in the man’s bedroom.

Irvin Schnexayder, 20, who is on parole, told police he didn’t know how the items got into his room, Detective Marcia Oliver said in a probable-cause affidavit presented in court Friday.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said a 50-inch television, a pair of Jordan shoes and a Dish Network remote control device were stolen during the burglary Tuesday morning at a house in the 200 block of West 18th Avenue.

On Wednesday, the victim told police that Schnexayder had allegedly tried to sell a 50-inch television to a person she knew.

Because Schnexayder is on parole, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 cash-only bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary and theft of property.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Schnexayder.
