Ronald Leon Hale, 26, of 1140 Mary Lamons Road, was charged Friday with burglary after allegedly being caught inside a house, according to a report by sheriff's Deputy Bobby Matthews.
Deputies responded to a burglary call in the 5800 block of Kingsport Highway.
Deputies entered the house "and saw (Hale) laying under the sink in the process of removing the kitchen sink," the report said.
Hale was taken outside until the arrival of the homeowner, who confirmed "he didn't have permission to remove the sink or be in the house at any time," the report said.
The homeowner told deputies she did not know Hale, who was held on no bond pending a first scheduled court appearance on Monday.
