A man accused of being part of a burglary ring tied to a Lockwood shooting and drug case denied a pair of felony burglary charges Thursday.
Todd Edward Berry, 47, appeared in District Court by video from the county jail.
Judge Susan Watters said a trial date will be set later.
Prosecutors said Berry is part of a group of drug users who burglarized storage units and sold the stolen goods to pay for drugs. Charging documents say he befriended an elderly woman who lived near him and gained access to her storage unit by offering to clean it.
He and several other people then stole from the unit, according to the affidavit.
Berry is the third person charged in the burglary ring. Another, 28-year-old Jonathon Warren Walker, told investigators that they stole to buy methamphetamine from Walter White, who is facing federal drug and gun charges.
White was shot in a gunfight in January in Lockwood. His son, Brandon White, has been charged in connection with the shooting, which prosecutors say involved a dispute over a $10,000 drug debt, prosecutors said.
Alex Lee Honrud, 25, also has been charged in the burglaries.
