ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene man is charged with burglary after he was allegedly caught pawning items he stole from a woman’s north side home.

According to an arrest report, 38-year-old Derrick Styles was arrested at a pawn shop on South 1st Street Monday. He allegedly broke into the victim’s home on North 18th Street through a locked door and took several items—including a stun gun and a pocket knife.

Officers said a neighbor gave them a description and the shoes he was wearing at the pawn shop matched a print at the victim’s home.

As of Thursday, he remains in the Taylor County Jail with bail set at $10,000.
