WATFORD CITY, N.D. - A Watford City man remains in custody on a $25,000 bond after first being arrested on drug charges and then being charged in connection with a burglary.
Court documents show 20-year-old Paul Weston was arrested on June 4 after law enforcement executed a search warrant on his camper.
He faces three drug-related charges for that case, but law enforcement charged him in another case while he was still in custody.
Law enforcement officers say Weston was part of a burglary June 4 that was interrupted when a woman returned to the residence unexpectedly.
He and the other suspect were wearing bandannas over their faces and fled through the back door of the home with a rifle, computer and other items.
Weston is charged with burglary, theft and wearing masks during a criminal offense.
A judge set Weston's bond at $25,000, which the Clerk of Courts Office says has both cases attached.
Weston's preliminary hearing is set for July 11. He has requested a bond reduction.
