Police said Shelton stole electronics, cash, credit cards and personal documents from the woman’s home. Officers arrested him three days later with some of the victim’s property on him at the time, according to an incident report.

Online court records show Shelton pleaded guilty to a felony charge of burglary of a dwelling/boat with a person present; six other felony charges were dismissed but read in. After accepting his plea, the court withheld a sentence and put him on three years of probation concurrent to four other cases.
