FROM THE BLOTTER: Alleged burglar found asleep

(Continued)

Stolen property was valued at a total of more than $23,000 and included the pickup and SUV, a Herrington & Richardson 30/30 rifle, a tool box, a pair of boots, a vehicle CD player, a checkbook and $8,000 check, CDs, a pole saw, a chain saw, a propane heater, a brake controller, two credit cards, a flashlight, two pocketknives, various hand tools, two junk lawnmowers and scrap copper. Most of the items were recovered during the initial investigation, the sheriff’s office reported.

Kirkbride was charged with three felony thefts, burglary of a building, burglary of a building, criminal mischief and a misdemeanor theft, according to jail records, which indicated Dorris received the same charges, plus an additional felony theft charge.

Dorris was released Tuesday evening from the Parker County Jail on a total bond of $65,500, while Kirkbride remained in jail, jail records show.

The Democrat was unable to reach Dorris for comment as the number listed for Dorris’ address was not in service.

Aggravated assault

Authorities arrested a man on a charge of threatening a woman with a gun after responding to an intoxicated driver call early Sunday morning.

Alan Corey Aultman, 31, of Weatherford, was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and driving while intoxicated, the probable cause affidavits filed by DPS and the Parker County Sheriff’s Office state.

After observing a red pickup returning to the complainant’s address in the 100 block of Northstar Crossing Lane, Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Stephen Nall stopped the truck driven by Aultman in front of the residence.

A preliminary roadside breath test showed that Aultman tested at more than double the legal .08 blood alcohol level, according to the affidavit.

A woman at the residence told deputies that Aultman pointed a firearm at her during an argument in the residence, placing her in fear of imminent bodily injury or death, before leaving the scene armed, a deputy with the sheriff’s office reported.

She reportedly requested an emergency protection order.
