    Local man denies

    a trespass charge

    A Castleton man with a burglary conviction denied breaking into his grandfather’s home.

    Christopher Dodge, 24, returned to Rutland jail after pleading innocent Thursday in Rutland criminal court to a felony charge of unlawful trespass.

    Police said Dodge was found in the Castleton home of his grandfather in June. Affidavits state the grandfather had left the home and asked another grandson to watch the place because he feared Dodge would rob the place.

    The grandson found Dodge in the house and called police, affidavits said. Dodge was on probation after serving one year in prison following a conviction for burglarizing a different Castleton home in 2011, records show.

    Immediately after the June incident, Dodge’s probation officer ordered a drug test. Dodge tested positive for cocaine, heroin and marijuana and he was jailed, records state.
