Late Monday night, Daniel Founds was arrested for breaking into a home in the 1100 block of So. Tabor.

Founds recently got of jail, after he drove a stolen SUV into the South Platte and set it afire.

Police went to S. Tabor around 11:45 p.m. Monday to check out the report that Founds, 30, forced his way in.

Founds was in the home when police arrived. The person who lived there said they were acquainted but Founds didn't live there, although a coat belonging to Founds was inside of the home, police spokesman John Deals said.

Founds, who was said to be from Colorado, was staying in that block when he was first arrested, according to police reports.

Deal said Founds showed up this time while the resident was sleeping and pried the door open, causing about $100 in damage. 

Founds was getting his coat when officers arrived.  He was taken back to jail, charged with trespassing and criminal mischief. Bond was set at $1,000.

Founds ran a stolen SUV into the South Platte river on Jan. 2. Law officers soon found him on foot and took him to jail. He was convicted of two counts of theft, sentenced to 30 days and ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution to the owner of the SUV.

He actually served 23 days before he was released on Jan. 25, according to sheriff’s records.
