A Godfrey man was charged Tuesday in Madison County Circuit Court with a felony charge of residential burglary, according to a press release from Madison County Sheriff Robert J. Hertz.
Police identified the man as Andrew D. Trobaugh, 34, of the 1400 block of West Delmar Avenue.
On Monday, May 26, at about 5:10 p.m., the Madison County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home in 2500 block of Randolph Street, Godfrey, in reference to a reported residential burglary. Deputies met with an occupant of the residence who reported that someone forced their way into his home while he was away. The victim told the responding deputy the suspect stole his prescription medications. The responding deputy developed evidence linking Trobaugh to the burglary. Trobaugh was identified by the victim as a subject he had previously hired to do odd jobs around his home.
Deputies located Trobaugh, at his residence, later the same day. Trobaugh was taken into custody and transported to the Madison County Jail, where he was held pending a formal review of facts by the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office.
The felony warrant and information was signed by Judge Richard Tognarelli, who set bond at $100,000.
