A local man causes panic in a quiet East Asheville neighborhood. 25-year-old Adrian Villerreal was arrested for breaking into a home in Oakley Monday afternoon.
Police say Villarreal was harassing drivers at the corner of Main Street and Fairview Road in Oakley. An off-duty firefighter spotted 25-year-old Adrian Villerreal trying to get money from passing drivers and alerted police. Officers say after not getting what he wanted, Villarreal then took his pleas to a home. The homeowner there would deny him too, but this time he wasn't going to walk away empty handed.
Villarreal took off with a pair of shoes, but his get away would be short lived. In a matter of minutes, police had him in custody.
Villarreal is charged with first degree burglary and resisting arrest.
