Arrested homeless man makes first court appearance

Roy Gleiter made his first court appearance today on charges of trespassing and unlawful conduct on public property.

Gleiter was arrested on Wednesday at a camp along Highway 50 where he's been living for several months. The judge ruled Gleiter will be allowed to live at a homeless shelter until his next court appearance. His attorney says he could be released from jail as early as today.

The woman who was living with him in a tent, Debra Cowden, was taken to Parkview hospital for an evaluation. No update on her status or condition.

Gleiter's two dogs were taken to Pueblo Animal Services. The shelter says the animals are on an owner hold. By law they're required to keep stray and seized animals for five days.
