A Bryan man was arrested Friday after authorities said he broke into a home and stole jewelry.

According to Bryan police, around 8 a.m., officers were called to a home in the 1300 block of East William J. Bryan Parkway on the report of a burglary. A man and woman said the home had been burglarized and they suspected Delmus Deshon Graves, 31, whom they knew.

Authorities said jewelry was missing from a bedroom in the home. Authorities spoke with Graves, who initially said he had been at his brother’s home all day but eventually admitted he had broken into the home, police said. Graves said he did so to retrieve items that belonged to a family member and that he used the restroom and made a sandwich. Police said Graves had a backpack that contained various items from the victims’ home, including the jewelry. Officers also found a cigarillo filled with synthetic marijuana, a report notes.

Graves is charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, and misdemeanor possession of synthetic marijuana. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $12,000 bond.
