Man charged with trying to break into hotel room | Police & Courts

Richmond police arrested a man for attempted second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication in a public place after officers were called to Countryside Inn twice on Wednesday.

The first time officers were called was at 8 p.m. when they responded to a disturbance, according to a citation. Officers learned there had been an argument, and Gregory Seney, 41, Lancaster, was escorted off the property.

At 9:32 p.m., officers were again called to the same location when it was reported Seney was intoxicated and trying to break into a hotel room.

Witness said Seney had a screwdriver and was beating on the door and window yelling, “‘Open the door (expletive), or I’m going to kill you,'” the citation reads.

Witnesses said he also threatened to kill another person and was in a disturbance with a third person. He then threw the screwdriver at the window, breaking it, to try and enter the hotel room.

Officers arrived and saw Seney running away, the citation states. Police were able to detain him, and he admitted to breaking the window, but denied doing everything else.

Seney smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.
