Sandwich man says he broke into homes to steal pain meds

SANDWICH – An 18-year-old Sandwich man charged with residential burglary told police he broke into homes to steal pain medication for a friend who had back problems, court records show.

Karter L. Hothan, of the 600 block of North Ash Street, was charged with two counts of residential burglary for breaking into two Sandwich homes Feb. 19.

One house is on the 700 block of Castle Drive and another is on the 500 block of South Davis Street in Sandwich. He was arrested by Sandwich Police, records show.

Hothan admitted he had broken into several homes to steal pain medication for a friend, court records state.

He also said he stole change to pay court fines, according to court records.

Hothan was on court supervision and was ordered to pay $1,250 in court fines Feb. 10 after pleading guilty to charges of criminal trespass to a vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hothan remained in DeKalb County Jail on Wednesday, unable to post 10 percent of his $50,000 bond. He is next due in court Friday.
