A man was charged with aggravated burglary Tuesday night after admitting to stealing his neighbor’s tools.

Lebanon police responded to a call of a theft around 9:30 p.m. in which the victim told police that someone stole his tools from his garage.

According to police, they then spoke with the neighbor, Seth Graves, 21, who told his neighbor and police that he had seen a man with a gray shirt leave the victim’s garage earlier that day.

Officers said the victim told them that Graves had sent him several text messages that day asking if he or his wife were home.

Following further questioning, officers said Graves admitted to stealing the tools.

The tools were then retrieved and returned to the victim.

Graves was charged with aggravated burglary and filing a false report.
