Accused burglar found competent
April 7, 2019
A man was found competent to face a burglary charge in connection with a break-in that occurred more than two years ago.
Everett Bridenbaugh, 22, was arrested on a warrant issued after his fingerprints were allegedly found in the home.
According to court documents, a resident in the 700 block of Foothill reported he returned home after being away overnight to find his car was driven out of the garage and was stuck in a snowbank and he was missing a $4,000 coin collection.
Investigators were able to get fingerprints at the scene, but it was October 2018 before they came back, allegedly identifying Bridenbaugh.
A warrant was issued for his arrest for burglary, grand larceny and grand larceny of a vehicle. He was arrested by Sparks Police on Nov. 28, 2018, while panhandling near an onramp. Concerns about his ability to aid in his defense prompted a request for the competency exam. So he was sent back to Sparks, this time to Lakes Crossing, where doctors found he was competent.
Bridenbaugh remains in custody and his case was remanded back to East Fork Justice Court.
