A Casper man has entered a plea in court, in a case where he is accused of covering up a child in a car with items taken during a burglary.

Thirty-four year old Jeremy Holz has pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary and child endangerment.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in mid-September, officers were called to a house burglary on Saint John’s Street.

When they arrived on scene, they found a car filled to the roof, and then later heard a baby crying from the back seat.

The baby was in a car seat covered with various items and it was determined that it belong to 27-year Jennifer Rozell, who had accompanied Holz.

The child was taken into protective custody.

Witnesses told investigators they say Rozell and Holz were taking items outside the house and put them in the car, but Rozell and Holz claimed they were moving their property out of a friend’s house.

The caretaker of the house recognized some of the property and did not know Rozell or Holz.

Holz is being held on $7,500 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison on the burglary charge and up to one year in prison on the child endangering charge if convicted.

Rozell has pleaded not guilty to similar charges connected to this case, and is awaiting trial.
