A Batesville man was taken into custody and accused of residential burglary and violating a protection order.
The incident occurred midday Tuesday when authorities were called to 115 Dennison Heights in regards to Casey Pittman, 44, being at his mother’s residence.
Police say his mother, Mary Louise Pittman, has an order of protection on Casey, and she informed authorities Casey, because of past problems, was not welcome in the residence. Mrs. Pittman told police she was out-of-town at the time and found out about Casey being in the residence from a friend. That’s when she called police to investigate.
Police say they found doors unlocked into and out of the residence. A bed appeared to have been slept in, and it also appeared someone had been cooking something to eat in the kitchen. Authorities say Casey Pittman’s criminal history shows three previous convictions in 2017 for violating orders of protection.
Pittman was placed into custody on a probable cause hold.
Possible charges Pittman could face include residential burglary and violating an order of protection — both felonies.
