A woman’s acquaintance allegedly broke into her home while she slept and stole money, credit cards, and her sex toys.
Michael Holden is a 36-year-old resident of Tyrone, Pennsylvania.
Holden has had several interactions with the authorities for multiple purported illegal acts. When speaking with the police, the man has always reportedly been wearing a baseball cap with the Pittsburgh Pirates logo.
On the evening of April 5, a woman with whom Holden is acquainted allegedly received an unwelcome visit from the man.
The 35-year-old resident reportedly took a sleep aid and dozed off on the sofa.
When the woman woke up the next day, she discovered $700 of her rent money, more than one bank card, and just over $150 in sex toys were missing from her home.
She asked her neighbors if they noticed anyone lurking around the night before, and one of them said they saw someone walk into the woman’s home just before midnight.
When the alleged victim got the description of the person reportedly seen entering her residence, she purported that it was Holden, who resides approximately a block away from her.
Later that afternoon, the alleged victim and her boyfriend were out and about when they saw Holden walking near a store. When the man noticed them, he reportedly ran off.
The pair trailed Holden until they were able to talk to him about the situation.
Holden allegedly said he did go into the house and that he noticed a pile of money on the floor.
The authorities were notified by the woman, and she told them about the alleged illegal entry and theft.
When it was learned from a neighbor’s surveillance footage that the suspect was adorned in a Pirates baseball cap and had glasses, the police connected the description with their previous encounters with Holden.
After she looked at several photos displayed to her by the police, the woman reportedly identified Holden as the person she suspected robbed her home.
Holden is expected to face charges for suspicion of burglary, theft, and criminal trespass.
