BROWNINGTON — A man has denied breaking into a Brownington home and causing damage to property.

Jason Degreenia, 45, currently incarcerated at Northeastern Correctional Facility, pleaded innocent to felony charges of trespass in an occupied residence and unlawful mischief. Judge Thibault released him on an unsecured $2,500 appearance bond.

In his affidavit, Trooper Anthony Rice said he was called around 6:45 p.m. on May 27 by a man reporting that Degreenia was attempting to break into his house. Upon arrival, Trooper Rice and Logan Miller saw a man fleeing toward the nearby woods. The man, later identified as Mr. Degreenia, was apprehended.

Trooper Rice noted that Degreenia appeared to be nodding off during questioning. A woman at the house stated that she and the caller were home when another woman began pounding on the front door, demanding entry. Degreenia then allegedly kicked in the back door.

The affidavit also mentioned previous conflicts between the caller and Degreenia, with the caller having warned Degreenia to stay away. The back door and its hardware showed signs of damage, according to Trooper Rice.
