Man Charged in Huntingdon Home Invasion
According to a police report, Keith Patterson broke into a home at 452 High Street in Huntingdon, Tuesday morning. David Reynolds, his wife Theresa and 12-year-old daughter were all sleeping at the time of the home invasion. “We went to bed late and of course we got the humidifier going, we run the fan, I just did not hear it,” said David Reynolds. Investigators said the robber tried to break into six locations at the house. He broke a window on the side of the house and entered the home. After breaking into the house and stealing the keys to the $40,000 Dodge Challenger, police said Patterson drove over 1,000 miles. He was arrested Wednesday morning after he failed to pay for gas in Ridgeport, Nebraska. “Anytime you have someone who will break into a residence where people are home at the time of the break-in, we kind of consider those people more dangerous than someone who is just out to steal something and make some fast cash, “said Huntingdon Police Lt. Donnie Hill. According to investigators, Patterson has been arrested previously for robberies. The Reynolds’ said they will soon be putting in a home security system.
