OGDEN -- A 36-year-old man is facing aggravated burglary charges after allegedly breaking into someone else's apartment early Tuesday morning and striking them with brass knuckles.
Ogden Police Lt. Will Cragun said Moises Gongora forced his way into an apartment on the 800 block of Monroe Boulevard around 2 a.m. Tuesday after knocking on the door. The two occupants of the apartment didn't recognize Gongora. He hit one of them with brass knuckles.
Gongora, who appeared disoriented, kept asking for his wife and asked the occupants what they were doing there.
When Gongora then left the apartment, the occupants called police.
Officers arrested Gongora nearby, Cragun said, and his behavior indicated he may have been on drugs.
Court documents filed Wednesday in 2nd District Court in Ogden state officers found methamphetamine in Gongora's possession during the arrest.
Gongora was charged Wednesday with aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony, and possession or use of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, a second-degree felony. Ben Lomond High School is near where he was arrested.
Gongora was booked into Weber County Jail, with no bail. A court date has not been set.
It is Gongora's second drug-related incident in the past two months for which he is facing charges. A probable cause affidavit states officers at the Weber County Jail found meth in Gongora's possession on Feb. 19 after he had been arrested for assaulting his wife.
He was charged in that incident with possession or use of a controlled substance in a jail or prison, a second-degree felony, and assault, a class B misdemeanor.
