GEORGETOWN, OH (FOX19) - A man who was reported missing from Missouri has been arrested in Brown County after he broke into someone's home.

Just before 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to a residence on Lake Street in Georgetown. A neighbor saw a male subject inside the residence, which is in the process of being remolded.

Upon arrival, officers found Jason Barroca, 34. Police say he was intoxicated and told them he was looking for a place to stay.

The suspect was arrested and transported to the Brown County Adult Detention Center. It was discovered that he had been entered as a missing person by the St. Louis Police Department in Missouri on May 6, 2010.  They were notified but had no wants on the suspect.

Barroca was initially charged with Criminal Trespass, but additional charges of Breaking and Entering and Theft will also be filed.  Barroca remains in custody at the Brown County Adult Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing on the charges.
