A man was arrested by the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) Saturday after allegedly breaking into a Cape San Blas residence.

Kenneth N. Rogers (45), was arrested after the GCSO received a call regarding a residential alarm in the 1000 block of Cape San Blas Road, according to a press release from the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy responded to the location at 11:43 a.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 28. Once on scene, the residential alarm continued to sound and damage to a portion of the porch roof was discovered.

As the deputy approached the residence he observed Rogers inside the home plundering through the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Back-up arrived and Rogers was subsequently arrested.

Deputies found the drawers and medicine cabinet rummaged through in a bathroom. Rogers had armed himself with a kitchen knife during the burglary. Damage to a portion of the floor and ceiling of the home was noted, which was the result of Rogers accidentally locking himself in a room and unable to get out.

At the time of his arrest, Rogers appeared to be preparing to shower.

Rogers was charged with burglary of a structure while armed and criminal Mischief. He was transported to the Gulf County Detention Facility where he is currently held on a $16,000 bond.
