Police arrested a number of people on burglary charges May 3 after they unlawfully took up residence in a foreclosed home, according to an RPD report.

Investigators developed information indicating that several people were living in a foreclosed home in in the 300 block of Bowerwood Drive.

It was further determined that the former residents had declared bankruptcy, and the home had been repossessed by the lending institution. The house not been resold and rented to anyone, the police report stated.

During the evening hours, officers watching the house saw a man enter the residence. Police then approached the residence and detained 26-year-old Delieto A. Jones of Franklin, and he was arrested on the strength of an outstanding bench warrant form Madison District Court charging him for failure to appear.

A search of the residence produced a loaded .25 caliber handgun and a set of digital scales from the area of the residence where Jones was discovered, the report stated

Jones was taken to the police station for an interview where he attempted to swallow a small baggie of cocaine, according to the report.

However, officers were able to prevent the act and recovered the cocaine.

Jones was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In the meantime, officers detained three other people in close proximity to the residence who were identified as living in the residence, the report stated.

They were identified as Dylan R. Cartwright, 20, South Third Street, Richmond; Brittany N. Coovert, 21, Osage Court, Lexington; and Tiffany L. Templin, 19, Elkchester Circle, Nicholasville.
