Oct 21, 2012

A Silver City man is faces charges after police say he stole his mother's furniture while high on meth, then sold it in Phoenix.

The Silver City Sun-News reports that 20-year-old Daniel Salas, who is in jail on other charges, recently was charged with burglarizing his mother's home in June.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office says the man's mother reported that her home has been burglarized after finding all of her living room furniture gone. She told deputies that the rims and the spare tire also were stolen from her car. She told authorities that she suspected her son because he had broken into her home in the past when he has been mad at her.

It was unclear if Salas had an attorney.
