A Hopkinsville man was arrested at 10:10 p.m. Monday at a home on South Virginia Street for a burglary in progress, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.

Officers received a call regarding a burglary in progress at the home and upon police arrival, they could see a man inside the home.

The man was identified as Jesse Stubblefield, 61, who had been trespassed from the home the day before, the report stated. Being trespassed from the home means an individual is not allowed to come on the property; that person will then be charged with trespassing or burglary if he does come on the property after he has been trespassed.

Stubblefield allegedly made entry into the home through a window, during which he damaged a sink inside the home. After making entry, Stubblefield reportedly placed various household chemicals into air vents around the house, also causing additional damage.

He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary.
