A man who was staying in MECCA's residential program on 438 Southgate Ave. allegedly stole $555 worth of furniture.

Ryan K. Shadden, 26, was charged with third-degree theft, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Reports said Shadden left the program April 3 and took the furniture from his room with him, though it belongs to MECCA.

Police said the owners called Shadden, who agreed to return the furniture three times but didn't followed through.

Officers called Shadden April 21, and he told them, "I thought the furniture was donated. I get paid on 4/20 and will rent a U-Haul and return it."

Police said they agreed it would be done by May 15, but as of May 22 it had not.

Complaints said Shadden now refuses to answer any calls from law enforcement.
