Man arrested for felony burglary after breaking into BG apartment

A Toledo man has been arrested for felony burglary after he allegedly broke into his girlfriend’s apartment.

On Monday around 2:20 a.m., Bowling Green police were dispatched to the 700 block of High Street for a report of a burglary in progress.

The resident told police when she returned home, she could smell a man’s cologne as soon as she opened her apartment door. She stated she looked over at her couch and observed two water bottles laying there, along with a bag of chips that was rolled up. She instantly called out the name of her boyfriend, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

The boyfriend, identified as Tyler Reynolds, walked into the living room. She asked him how he got into the apartment and began dialing 911.

Reynolds reportedly grabbed her car keys and fled.

While police were talking to the woman, Reynolds called and told the officer he and the alleged victim were having relationship problems and they got in a fight the previous night and he hadn’t heard from her all day, according to the report.

The woman told police Reynolds had been stalking her. She showed the officer a cut window screen and damaged living room window. She stated that the screen was damaged from a prior incident involving Reynolds; however, it was not this bad, according to the report.

Police observed fresh fingerprints on the window where it appeared that Reynolds did force it open.

They placed extra patrol in the area.

The woman called the BGPD non-emergency number shortly after officers left her residence and said Reynolds had told her he would be at the residence in 10 minutes.

He drove up to the apartment at approximately 5:50 a.m. and was taken into custody, according to the report.

Officers reportedly found 8.17 grams of marijuana in the vehicle.

Reynolds, 21, was charged with felony burglary and possession of marijuana and was taken to jail.

He posted bond Tuesday and was released.
