Family wakes up to stranger stomping on roof

A Vero Beach family woke up to a man stomping on their roof, the Indian River Sheriff's Office says. When deputies arrived, they say Jacob Futch claimed he was having a meeting with a DEA agent on the roof.

The family told deputies that they don't know Futch, and Futch admitted to not knowing who the agent is, according to an arrest report.

A man living in the home told deputies he and this three young sons woke up to Futch yelling and howling and walking down the road around 6:00 a.m. on Nov. 11.

Two hours later, the man says they woke up again after hearing Futch on the roof of his home near the 1800 block of 4th Lane.

Futch is facing a misdemeanor charge of trespassing. He is being held in the Indian River County Jail on $500 bond.
