A 56-year-old Sweet Street man found hiding under a backyard pool deck in the 700 block of Perry Street about 1 a.m. Wednesday was charged with possession of burglar’s tools and criminal trespass.

Clay Rhodes was allegedly found carrying a screwdriver, two masks and a par of gloves when he was taken into custody after police received a call about a suspicious man in that neighborhood. The owner of the residence where Rhodes was found told police he wants to be listed as the complainant on the trespass count, according to a police report.
