In the burglary case, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, the business owner told police that she found the door to her business open and items missing when she returned on the afternoon of Feb. 17. Approximately $200 in cash was stolen from a drawer at the business and jewelry and chalk markers valued at approximately $100 were also stolen.
Video surveillance shows Power entering the building with several bags, going down the hallway to the business, and then returning with items in his hands.
