JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Police have charged a man wanted in Colorado with burglarizing a neighbor's James Island home last week.

Charles Francis, spokesman for the Charleston Police Department, said 41-year-old Quentin Stephen Hale, of 1018-B Encampment Court, broke into another home on the same street on Oct. 12.

Nothing was taken from the residence. Francis said Hale is wanted in Colorado for violating parole on drug charges.

He is charged with second-degree burglary and property crime enhancement.

Hale is being held in the Charleston County Detention Center. The investigation is ongoing.
