WARSAW — A Michigan man was recently arrested after allegedly breaking into a home and stealing about $1,000 worth of collectible coins.
Zachary Henry Woodcock, 30, Coldwater, Mich., is charged with burglary, a level 4 felony; and theft, a level 6 felony.
On Oct. 5, 2021, a Warsaw Police officer responded to a theft report. A woman said Woodcock had stolen coins from her residence on Sept. 30, 2021. The value of the coin collection was assessed at $1,000.
According to court documents, the woman said Woodcock had been staying with her and her husband while Woodcock was attending rehab. After several confrontations, the couple told Woodcock he was no longer able to live with them. The woman’s husband said he changed the residence’s front door lock and chained the back door, as he was afraid Woodcock would enter the home while they were gone.
On Sept. 30, 2021, the couple said Woodcock was sitting in a vehicle outside of their home. The couple asked their neighbor to watch their home when they left. After they left the scene, Woodcock exited his vehicle and allegedly attempted to enter the home through the front door.
He walked to the residence’s back door, opened the front door from inside the home and walked out with his arms full of items. Woodcock placed the items in his vehicle and left the scene.
The officer later learned that Woodcock pawned $175 worth of collectible coins on Sept. 30, 2021.
Woodcock was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on Jan. 11, 2022, with a $15,250 surety and cash bond.
