A Comer man was arrested recently after he allegedly tried to break into a house.
Michael Lee Kiser, 26, was charged with one count of criminal trespass after a E-911 call came in about a burglary in progress. Sgt. Jason Luke and Deputy Darren Sartain were dispatched to a home on Hwy. 106 South, and while en route, dispatch was relaying real time information about the suspect’s location and actions. Officers were advised he attempted to break in through the front door, and was later sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch. Just prior to their arrival, dispatch advised they lost contact with the caller. Arriving at the house, deputies began searching for the suspect. They located him (Kiser) inside a grey Chevrolet Trail Blazer, parked in front of the residence. The suspect was ordered to show his hands, and ordered out of the vehicle. When asked what he was doing there, Kiser stated, “she told me I could be here.” Luke asked who he meant, and he replied, “her.”
The woman at the house said she did not know who he was. Kiser was arrested and taken to jail.
