DAYTON — A 67-year-old man remains in jail on charges accusing him of breaking into his own home - a home police and neighbors said has been placed on a nusiance abatement list.
Harry Clinton Wright was arrested just after 6:30 p.m. when Dayton police were able to get him to come out of his house in the 2900 block of Kingston Avenue.
Police had been dispatched there just after 6 p.m. after neighbors called 9-1-1 to report that Wright had removed wood used to board up the structure to get inside.
Wright was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on a felony charge of breaking and entering, and misdemeanor charges of illegal occupation and obstructing official business.

His bail is $2,750 or 10 percent of that and he's due in court Wednesday.
Police at the scene told us that Tuesday night was not the first time Wright has broken into his own home. He has been arrested before.
Dayton's Use Nuisance Abatement Program is a legal process by which a structure can be declared a nuisance by virtue of evidence of certain illegal activity. The illegal activity consists of crimes in the following categories: drugs, gambling, illegal liquor sales, prostitution. Only the police can refer a property into the program.
Why Wright’s residence has been nuisance abated was not made clear.
WHIO-TV reached out Dayton police for comment on this report, but police did not respond to our request for an interview.

Kyle Savoie, who lives in the neighborhood, said neighbors have been dealing with drugs and prostitution around that address. He said they have spoken with Dayton police about the situation.
"Getting these kinds of houses out of the neighborhood is definitely going to be better in the community," said Savoie, who is raising a family.
He admitted that the neighborhood seems to be improving.
"It's kind of sickening.... If we can just get this house out of here, it's be much better," Savoie said.
