Vicksburg police arrested a Flora man Sunday on a charge of residential burglary.

Sunday at 8:39 p.m., officers responded to an address in the 3800 block of Washington Street in reference to an earlier burglary.

The homeowner reported that John Shoemaker, 61, of Flora, Mississippi, had broken into his home and lived there without his permission while he and his family were out of town for a period of weeks.

The homeowner said that $700 worth of food was missing, that Shoemaker had taken the interior doors off their hinges and had done other damage inside the residence.

Police arrested Shoemaker at the scene on a charge of residential burglary.

He appeared before Judge Angela Carpenter in Vicksburg Municipal Court Monday. She set his bond at $40,000 and bound him over to the Warren County grand jury.
