SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man accused of breaking into an occupied College-area home along with an accomplice and pulling a knife on a resident who chased him pleaded not guilty Friday to a burglary charge.
Tyler Ross Hubbs, 27, was ordered held on $35,000 bail.
A resident heard unfamiliar voices in the house in the 5300 block of Reservoir Drive shortly before 4 a.m. Wednesday and discovered two intruders clutching bags full of items they had just stolen, according to San Diego police.
The burglary suspects ran out of the home through an attached garage, and the resident gave chase, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.
When the victim caught up to him a short distance away, one of the fleeing men, later identified as Hubbs, allegedly pulled a knife. The defendant then handed over a purse he allegedly had taken from the home and ran off again with the rest of the loot.
A short time later, San Diego State University patrol officers who were helping city police search the area for the thieves found Hubbs hiding in bushes about a block from the scene of the home invasion, according to Battrick. The rest of the stolen property was recovered in that location, as well, the sergeant said.
During Friday's arraignment, defense attorney Jay Finnecy said Hubbs, who lives with his father in the College area, has no memory of the alleged crime and may have blacked out.
Hubbs will be back in court Dec. 20 for a readiness conference and Dec. 22 for a preliminary hearing. His alleged partner in the crime remained at large.
