OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office says a homeless man spent a comfortable Christmas inside an Oakland building that houses a senior citizens center and a Head Start preschool program.
Detective Mark Pfaff said Tuesday that Kristopher Keeler, 19, spent a three-day weekend at the Community Action Building.
He says Keeler ate food from the kitchen, used a computer and stole a van for a Christmas night run into nearby West Virginia.
Keeler is being held without bond on burglary, theft and property-destruction charges and couldn’t be reached for comment.
He was free on bond Christmas weekend while awaiting a hearing on earlier burglary charges.
