Man Charged With Burglarizing Mom's Home

A Putnam County man has been charged with aggravated burglary after allegedly confessing to breaking into his mother's home on Monday. Sheriff's Detective Brian Maxwell says 20-year-old Richard Samuel Helm of Maddux Court in Algood was questioned after a neighbor saw him near his mother's home in Silver Point. The mother told authorities that her son was not supposed to be at the residence, and further investigation revealed that someone had pried open the screen on a window at the front of the house to gain entry and had stolen a Wii gaming system and a video game for that system. Helm was located at his apartment and brought to the sheriff's office for questioning, during which he allegedly confessed. He goes to court on the burglary charge June 21st.
