FARMINGTON — A 27-year-old Farmington man was accused last week of stealing electronics, guns, jewelry and several catheters from a residence in Farmington.

Levi Nehring was charged Thursday in Farmington Magistrate Court with non-residential burglary on allegations he and another man, Dalton Rhodes, burglarized a storage container on Aug. 20 located at 3506 San Medina Ave.

Nehring has not yet retained legal representation, according to court records.

Rhodes, 21, told detectives in the arrest warrant affidavit he and Nehring were purchasing "dope" from a residence in the neighborhood when Nehring decided to pilfer the storage container, which was not locked.

Nehring also stole three laptops, skis, paperwork and an antique clock from the container, according to the affidavit.

And Nehring stole several catheters, according to Rhodes, and was "excited" about finding the items, the affidavit states.

Rhodes said he was not certain what purpose Nehring had for the catheters, according to the affidavit.

Farmington police spokeswoman Georgette Allen said detectives also were not certain what Nehring could do with the catheters.

Nehring admitted in an interview with detectives on Oct. 15 to burglarizing the storage container. Nehring does not provide an explanation documented in the affidavit for why he stole the catheters.

Rhodes has not been charged in connection to the burglary, according to court records.
