Wellington man denies home invasion
A Wellington man denied Monday that he invaded a neighbor’s home March 29.
Bradley Stribling, 29, was arrested on a warrant charging him with the felony after he allegedly kicked in the door of an Eagle Mountain Road garage.
The crime wasn’t reported for two weeks until the victim’s son returned home, and she said she felt safe enough to contact authorities.
Deputies discovered the jam was broken in on the door. The homeowner told deputies she was awakened by a loud noise and when she went to investigate found Stribling standing in her garage. When she asked what he was doing there, he allegedly told her he was looking for something.
A man who lives on the property verified her story, saying he convinced Stribling to leave.
On Monday, Brian Filter was appointed to represent Stribling. He was released from prison in November after being convicted of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. He served a prison term for theft after he was caught trying to take equipment from firefighters in 2009.
