SALEM — Bail has been set at $100,000 for a 23-year-old Centralia man charged this morning in Marion County court with felony residential burglary, just days after he was in court on a previous burglary charge.
David Teitsort had been free on $2,500 bond following an October 2013 arrest for residential burglary in which he allegedly admitted entering the home of retired police officer Todd Schultze in September.
Centralia police received their break in the case when some of the items reported taken from the Schultze home showed up at an area pawn shop.
That case was in court Tuesday and was reset for pretrial on August 26, with the defendant required to bring documentation regarding drug rehab.
Teitsort is now back in the Marion County jail, with his next court appearance scheduled for a July 29 preliminary hearing.
Because he was free on bond for a similar crime at the time of the most recent arrest, he is eligible for extended sentencing, which would have to be served consecutively if convicted in both cases. Residential burglary is a Class 1 felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
