Justice of the Peace Karen Orzech set a 29-year-old man’s bail at $5,000 in Justice Court Wednesday after he allegedly burglarized a Missoula home earlier in the month.
Charles Freetly is charged with a felony burglary count and has two out-of-county warrants for his arrest from Ravalli and Gallatin counties.
His bail in Ravalli County was set at $100,000 after his suspended sentenced was revoked.
According to the affidavit, a woman who lives in an apartment on Stephens Avenue reported on Aug. 2 that several items were stolen from the residence, including jewelry, a shotgun, an iPad and a keyboard.
“The investigation led to Charles Freetly,” the affidavit said. “Freetly admitted that he entered the apartment and took jewelry, coins, a shotgun, an iPad and other items.”
According to court documents, Freetly said he gave most of the items to a man named J.D.
Upon his appearance in Justice Court, Freetly said he didn’t have an address.
A felony count of burglary is punishable by 20 years in the Montana State Prison and a $50,000 fine.
