    A Rutland man who police say stole from parked vehicles and tried to break into an alternative high school in the city was ordered held on $20,000 bail after entering innocent pleas to a number of offenses.

    Jason C. Weedman, 29, remained behind bars on Monday after a Rutland criminal court judge set bail for him on Friday.

    Weedman is accused of a number of crimes, including felony charges of burglary, forgery and aiding in the commission of a felony.

    The charges, which Weedman categorically denied, relate to separate incidents.

    The most recent offenses relate to an attempted break-in at the Alternative High School in the Howe Center and thefts from an undisclosed number of vehicles in the city. The break-ins allegedly took place on January 30.

    Charges of forgery and aiding in the commission of a felony brought against Weedman related to an incident that took place last spring after Weedman sold some items to a consignment store in Rutland. He was issued a check for $90 in that transaction which he allegedly altered to collect $190 at the bank.
