Man charged with theft after video game consoles, games stolen

A Cottonwood Drive man was arrested Thursday in connection with a series of thefts that occurred over a period of two months.

John D. Applegate, 33, was charged with receiving stolen property (under $10,000) and five counts of theft by deception (under $500).

A resident in the 200 block of Irvine View Street reported that between Dec. 17 and Feb. 25, three Nintendo DS Lite game consoles and 11 games had been stolen from her home, according to a RPD news release.

Officers later determined that Applegate had been in possession of the items and transferred them to a third party during that time period.

A warrant was issued for Applegate’s arrest Thursday, and it was served the same day at the Madison County Detention Center where Applegate was incarcerated on unrelated charges.

A resident in the 200 block of Evansdale Avenue reported Sunday that a white iPod Touch, 16 GB, was stolen from his home during the evening. There were visitors to the home during the time of the theft. The device is worth $200.

• A resident in the 2000 block of Ty Lane reported that a Ruger .380 caliber pistol, worth $320, was stolen from his vehicle during the night. There were no signs of forced entry.

• A resident of Ty Lace reported Wednesday that several items, worth a total of $6,700, were stolen from his home some time during the prior two weeks.
