HOBART | A St. Joseph, Mich., man burglarized a house in Hobart because the homeowner owed him money, police said.

Daniel Joseph Stoica, 53, was charged with burglary, residential entry, theft and possession of marijuana through Lake Criminal court.

Police on Oct. 22 were called to a house in Lake Station on a report of a domestic dispute.

A Lake Station woman told police her former husband, who was extremely intoxicated, had broken into a house on Mississippi Street in Hobart and had taken a safe from it.

She said she knew about the burglary because he had called her and told her he had broken into the house and taken items because he was owed money from the homeowner, court documents state.

Police checked the back of the woman's pickup truck, as she instructed, and found a safe that had been taken from the house on Mississippi Street.

The former wife also discovered marijuana inside a cooler Stoica had been carrying and threw it into the yard of a person she knew in Lake Station, court documents state.
