Whitehall police arrested a 40-year-old Mississippi man for burglary at 1:30 a.m. July 9 after he allegedly forced entry into a residence in the first block of Beechwood Road.

A woman called 911 and told police the man kicked open a door and refused to leave.

The woman reportedly told police she met the man online and allowed him to "stay with her for a few days."

On the scene, police observed a broken door frame and noted the man inside the residence appeared intoxicated, according to reports.

The man refused to leave and admitted to breaking in because the door locks had been changed, reports said.

The woman told police she ordered the man to leave after he confronted her about a neighbor she was visiting. She said she moved her car from the residence so the man would not know if she was there.

According to reports, the woman met the man in mid-June and he had stayed at her residence on several occasions for short periods of time while between jobs.

The man was arrested and transported to jail, where police found less than 10 grams of marijuana in his possession, reports said.
