Police said Hall left his toddler-age daughter alone in a playpen in the living room of the house next door.

Police said Hall admitted to burglarizing the home on two occasions, and officers found alleged stolen items in the suspect’s bedroom: Bag of jewelry, jar and bag of loose change, TV, a doll and VHS Disney movies.
