Lisbon man bound over on burglary charge

LISBON — With police and the victims of two alleged recent crimes in the county Municipal Court courtroom of Judge Mark Frost on Thursday, Todd Allen Kirtley, 31, Rose Drive, Lisbon, agreed to waive his right to a preliminary hearing.

Kirtley is in custody at the county jail and his bond was reduced from $25,000 cash or surety to $20,000 cash or surety.

He is charged with a felony burglary charge for allegedly walking unannounced into a North Market Street home and telling the couple living there he wanted to see their daughter. The man ordered him to leave.

Kirtley was bound over to the grand jury on the burglary charge.

The couple whose home he walked into were in the courtroom, as was Jonathan W. Gullett, the man he is facing a misdemeanor charge of assault for punching in the nose on the same day.

Finally, police officers were in the courtroom who had chased Kirtley after he was found walking away from the North Market Street home and ran when he was ordered to halt. He wrestled with police and eventually was tased. Kirtley is further charged with resisting arrest.

A pretrial was set for March 21 for the assault and resisting arrest charges.
