Dwayne Yeager was desperate to avoid going to work Monday, deputies say, but his wife wouldn’t hear of it. So to avoid heading to his fabrication job at Dooson Hydro Technology, deputies say, Yeager staged a burglary of his house. He called authorities shortly after 7 a.m. "I need a sheriff in Brandon," said Yeager, 31. He said he was gone from home only 45 minutes before discovering the break-in. "I come back, my door’s wide open. My windows to my son’s bedroom are open. My TVs are laying on the ground," he told a dispatcher.
