CO:Suspect held at gun point accused of burglary

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A man accused of stealing a Jeep last week may have taken much more than that.

Anthony Loveridge, 19, was arrested after theft victim Joseph Bateman found Loveridge sleeping in his stolen Jeep Grand Cherokee on Friday. When Bateman stumbled upon his vehicle, he held Loveridge at gun point until police arrived.

Bateman first reported a break-in on April 3 when he returned home from North Dakota, according to a Mesa County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit.

Dozens of items were stolen, including TVs, gaming systems, phones, five guns, thousands of ammunition rounds and his 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Even Bateman's safe--which contained an external hard drive and the title to his Jeep-- had been broken into, he said.
