Deputies arrest Cambria man for attempted burglary, carjacking in Creston
Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Cambria man this weekend after he allegedly broke into a Creston home, threatened the owner and tried to take his car.
Home owner Dale Stuve called authorities around 7 p.m. Sunday to report that a man had broken into the house at 4044 Highway 41 East, sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Hascall said. Jedidiah James Williams, 21, had allegedly used a rock to break a back door window and enter the laundry room, Hascall said.
According to Hascall, these events followed:
Armed with a rifle, Stuve tried to hold the laundry room door closed. But Williams pushed it open.
“(Stuve) said, ‘Don’t come any further or I’ll shoot you,’” Hascall said.
Williams left, returning moments later to demand Stuve’s car. He didn’t get it.
Hascall said authorities found Williams a quarter-mile away in front of another home. He was arrested and charged with burglary and attempted carjacking.
Williams also had three unrelated arrest warrants, Hascall said. The Cambria man was being held Tuesday at County Jail in lieu of $57,500 bail.
