A Superior man accused of driving two teens around to prowl cars made an initial appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court last week.
Shane Leon Boho, 34, faces two counts of theft as a party to a crime and two counts contributing to the delinquency of a child, all misdemeanors.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges
Cash bail was set at $250 and Boho was ordered to have no contact with the teens or an alleged victim.
According to the criminal complaint:
Superior Police Officer Mike Kendall was dispatched to the 2300 block of Hughitt Avenue the morning of Aug. 20 for a report of two males prowling cars. He saw two figures running in the middle of John Avenue.
Turning the corner on North 24th Street a few seconds after them, Kendall saw a vehicle stopped in the road with a light on inside the car and some figures moving.
He approached the car and found two teens, ages 13 and 16, in the back seat. Neither was wearing a shirt, they were covered with sweat, breathing heavily and had startled looks on their faces.
The driver, later identified as Boho, had a car stereo sitting on his lap next to the door. Other items found in the car included a car stereo faceplate that was found to have been taken from a car parked on the 2300 block of Hughitt and three nail guns that had been taken from a truck parked in the area.
Officer Jeffrey Darst, who came to assist Kendall, located several vehicles within a two-block radius that had their doors slightly ajar as if they were shut quietly. All appeared to have been rifled through.
If convicted, Boho faces a maximum penalty of nine months in prison and $10,000 fine for each charge.
His next court appearance is Sept. 11.
