handcuff-300x225BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – A Brookville man is facing charges after he told police a home invader was responsible for damage he allegedly did while he was intoxicated.

According to a criminal complaint, around 1:00 p.m. on July 2, Carlose Dustin Nokes, 24, of Brookville, reported a home invasion to police.

Nokes allegedly told police at approximately 11:00 p.m. on July 1, he went for a long walk to the Brookville Dam, walking through a field and sitting in the woods for a couple of hours, the complaint states.

Nokes allegedly said when he arrived home in the early morning hours, he noticed the glass smashed out of his front door, and someone had entered his house and stole $500.00 in cash from his bedroom along with a woman’s purse, the complaint continues.

Asked why he waited 12 hours to contact police, Nokes allegedly said he didn’t want to cut his feet on the glass, the complaint states.

According to the complaint, police detected a strong odor of alcohol on Nokes’ breath while speaking with him, and a preliminary breath test was positive for alcohol.

The complaint notes he is on probation with Jefferson County.

A neighbor told police he heard someone smash the glass out of the door and then heard “a lot of banging around like someone was getting pushed around,” the complaint indicates.

When police spoke with the woman whose purse was allegedly stolen, she allegedly said Nokes had gone to a bar around 9:00 p.m. and returned around 1:00 a.m. “totally drunk,” and she noted he “could not even stand up,” and he staggered into the glass window smashing it out, the complaint states.

The woman went on to say Nokes was lying “on the floor passed out puking his guts out all over the floor,” and the vomit “was totally gross,” so she cleaned it up, the complaint continues.

Based on information Brookville Police Officer Markle learned through the investigation, he requested a warrant of arrest for Nokes.

According to online court documents, Nokes faces the following charges:

  • False Reports – Reported Offense Did Not Occur
  • Disorderly Conduct Hazardous/Physical Offense

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on September 3, 2015, with District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak presiding.
