Gulf County officials say they arrested a burglar who locked himself in a room and then tried to take a shower, officials wrote in a news release.
Kenneth N. Rogers, 45, was arrested after the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a residential alarm in the 1000 block of Cape San Blas Road.
Deputies responded to the location at 11:43 a.m. on Saturday. Once on scene, the residential alarm continued to sound and damaged to a portion of the porch roof was found. As a deputy approached the residence, he observed Rogers inside the home plundering through the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator.
Rogers was subsequently arrested.
During the investigation, deputies found the drawers and medicine cabinet rummaged through in a bathroom. Deputies developed probable cause to believe Rogers armed himself with a kitchen knife during the burglary. Damage to a portion of the floor and ceiling of the home was located, which was the result of Rogers accidently locking himself in a room and unable to get out.
At the time of his arrest he appeared to be preparing to shower, officials wrote.
Rogers was charged with burglary of a structure while armed and criminal mischief. He is currently being held on a $16,000 bond.
