PALM HARBOR

Neighbor caught looking for drugs

A 54-year-old man caught as he rummaged through a neighbor's bathroom looking for prescription drugs apologized to his victim and said his drug addiction spurred him to burglarize the house, authorities said. Gary J. Paulsen, of 1511 E Dorchester Drive, was charged with burglary of a dwelling on Tuesday afternoon. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, a 77-year-old man became suspicious when he saw Paulsen's dog unattended in his yard Tuesday morning. The homeowner then noticed his garage door was open. The homeowner went into his house to find Paulsen looking through drawers in a bathroom, an arrest report shows. Paulsen apologized to the man and said he was looking for oxycodone because he has a drug addiction. Paulsen was also arrested on a warrant for failure to appear at his November 2008 arraignment on a charge of obtaining property with a worthless check. On Wednesday afternoon, Paulsen was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $10,300 bail.
