Former Police Officer Charged with Burglary

TABOR CITY -- A former Tabor City police officer is now charged with a felony for second degree burglary, after he was arrested for breaking into a woman's house and performing sexual acts in her bedroom.

Brian Kittell, 32, resigned from the Tabor City Police Department after being charged for misdemeanor breaking and entering.

Now, prosecutors say they have upgraded the charges to a felony because of further evidence and information provided from witnesses.

According to a police report, Kittell used a hidden key to enter the home and performed a sex act by himself. Authorities say Kittell was caught because he dropped his station issued cell phone on the floor.
