A very intoxicated Utah man was arrested for burglary of a dwelling after he broke into a motorhome which was being occupied by two minors.
28 year old Arsenio Lorenzo Azule of Parowan, Utah had been heavily drinking when he stumbled upon a motorhome on someone’s property. Azule let himself inside only to be discovered by two teenage girls who were camping in the vehicle. Azule left the motorhome and was spotted nearby by police officers attending to the burglary of a dwelling call. Azule attempted to run from police but was Tased and quickly apprehended by the attending officer. Azule was booked into the Iron County Jail on multiple charges including burglary of a dwelling.
Burglary of a dwelling
Utah Code 76-6-202 states “An actor is guilty of burglary who enters or remains unlawfully in a building or any portion of a building with intent to commit:
- a felony;
- an assault on any person;
- Lewdness. . . ;
- sexual battery . . . ;
- lewdness involving a child . . . ; or
- Voyeurism . . .
Burglary is a third degree felony unless it was committed in a dwelling, in which event it is a second degree felony.”
Sleep it off somewhere else
Police do not know why Azule broke into the motorhome. He may have known the girls were in there and had bad intentions or he may have just been extremely drunk and looking for somewhere to sleep it off. A reputable attorney could help someone arrested for burglary by ensuring their intentions are fairly represented in court.
