Warren man denies attempted break-in

WARREN — A Tait Road resident accused of trying to break into Lisa’s Total Image Salon, 1630 Parkman Road, Friday evening pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to commit an offense and possession of criminal tools during a jail arraignment Monday before Warren Municipal Court Judge Terry Ivanchak.

Patrick M. Jordan, 37, was assigned a $15,000 bond and ordered to return to court July 25 for a pre-trial hearing, court records show. He remained at the Trumbull County Jail Monday evening.

A man wearing blue jeans, a light blue shirt and sunglasses was standing next to the front door around 7:30 p.m. Friday, according to a witness. The man, later identified as Jordan, dropped a black item that made a loud clanging sound when it hit the concrete, according to a police report.

Jordan, according to the witness, again attempted to use the black object to get into the door. The witness yelled at the man, who turned and walked away.

Police investigators did not see any damage to the front door, but found the back door frame was laying on the ground, with multiple screws removed, the door handle broken off and the screen window ripped open. Several scrapes led to a hole in the bottom of the exterior door, the police report states.

Jordan, who was stopped by an officer at 1514 Parkman Road, admitted standing near the salon, but denied breaking into anything, the report states.

Jordan told an officer he was sitting in front of the business banging a pipe on the ground because he was bored.
