Once at the scene, the defendant (White) exited the vehicle with the minor child and went to the back of the victim's residence. The defendant attempted to unlawfully gain entry to the victim's residence by prying the rear window open with a screwdriver. The defendant made several pry marks on the upper left corner of the window frame causing less than $200 in damage. While the defendant was trying to pry the window open, law enforcement arrived on scene. The defendant and minor child immediately ran from the scene and the defendant discarded the screw driver in a nearby yard. The defendant, co-defendant and the two minor children were all taken into custody at the scene. The screw driver was also recovered.

    The minor children were released to their mother.
