MT. VERNON (WRXX) – Bond was set at $75,000 Wednesday in Jefferson County Court for a 44-year-old Mt. Vernon man accused of residential burglary.
According to Mt. Vernon Assistant Police Chief Robert Brands, around 9 p.m. Monday, a resident on North 10th in Mt. Vernon heard someone in their home. They reportedly found Trenton Page inside their home and attempting to take their TV. Page left the home a short time after being discovered.
The residents told police they’d known Page for several years before Monday’s incident. Assistant Chief Brands reports the home was damaged in Page’s alleged entry.
Officers located Page early the next morning and took him into custody. He was formally charged Wednesday with Class 1 felony residential burglary. Bond was set and Page was scheduled for a July 27 preliminary hearing.
Page has been convicted multiple times of alleged theft and served time in the Department of Corrections.
