Corey Wayland, 29, is charged with burglary, obstructing official business, domestic violence and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies were called to Wayland’s mother and step-father’s home in the 10600 block of West River Road at about 10:30 a.m. after his step-father reported he had broken into the home and tried to get to his mother, who was hiding in a closet.
Wayland’s step-father said Wayland used a ladder to climb to a first floor roof and access the home through a window, according to a report from Lorain County sheriff’s deputies.
The step-father said that after he confronted Wayland, his daughter saw Wayland flee to a residence of family friends, and he was found hiding under a blanket in the basement at the home on Sprague Road. In that home deputies also found some clothing as well as two glass pipes, a black scale with a green leafy substance on it, foil with burnt residue on it and a syringe.
While en route to the jail, Wayland mentioned being in the area of Colfax and Dupont roads about 9:30 a.m., which happened to be the time of another burglary. A resident from the 9900 block of Dupont Road positively identified Wayland as the man who had broken into her neighbor’s home.
In the earlier burglary, the woman saw a man who appeared nervous knocking on her neighbor’s door and talking on a cell phone, the report said.
