A 29-year-old Carroll man was highly intoxicated when he went into a closed business Saturday night and disrobed after he vomited and soiled his shorts, according to Police Chief Brad Burke.
Jesse Dean Seyler is charged with felony burglary for the hours-long incident, which was mostly recorded by a video surveillance system.
Seyler is accused of going into the interior design business in the 500 block of East Fifth Street through an unlocked door about 11:26 p.m., vomiting on a chair and urinating and defecating in his shorts, which he removed, Burke said. Seyler likely slept in an office for hours before he unplugged the surveillance system about 2:50 a.m. on Sunday and left.
The security system retained the recorded video of the previous hours despite being without power.
Seyler is accused of stealing a $1,100 custom bedspread, which he used to cover himself.
The burglary was reported the next morning, and police used images from the surveillance recordings to identify Seyler, who went to the police department to talk to an officer after the department posted a photo of him on Facebook. He was arrested Monday.
The estimated total damage to items inside the business, including the bedspread, was $5,000.
“The bedspread was recovered, but the owner doesn’t want it back,” Burke said.
The burglary charge is punishable by up to five years in prison if Seyler is convicted.
