A Broken Bow man was charged Tuesday in connection with a car burglary last month on the NSU campus.

Christopher L. Choate, 18, was charged with second-degree burglary and knowingly concealing stolen property. Prosecutors allege the charges stem from a May 7 burglary of a vehicle owned by Amber Jackson.

Jackson’s car was parked on campus authorities allege when Choate entered and took a prescription bottle of pills. The type of pills is not listed in court documents.

The second count alleged Choate concealed the bottle of pills.

Second-degree burglary is punishable by imprisonment for two to seven years and the concealing stolen property count is punishable by imprisonment for up to five years or a year in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $500.

NSU Officers Jim Flores and James Mynatt are listed as state witnesses.
