A Martinez man found hiding under a truck Monday morning is now facing a variety of charges.

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report, deputies were called to Southern Mechanical Inc., 3072 Damascus Road, around 4:30 a.m. Monday for an alarm activation. They discovered Todd Anthony Robert, 31, lying under a truck in a fenced-in area on the property.

Todd told deputies he jumped the fence to take a short-cut to a friend’s home on Bayvale Road. Deputies, however, discovered copper tubing that had been tossed over the fence surrounding the property.

Robert was booked into the Richmond County Jail on charges of criminal trespass, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and two counts of entering an automobile to commit a theft.
