SHELTON — A 22-year-old Lake Phillips man pleaded not guilty Monday morning to charges of burglary, voyeurism and possession of stolen firearms.
The charges come in connection with cases involving women waking up to a man watching them while they slept.
Chase Garner entered his plea before Mason County Superior Court Judge Toni Sheldon this morning.
The court last week charged Garner with six counts of voyeurism, five counts of possession of stolen firearms and two counts of theft of firearms.
Garner was represented by Olympia Attorney Robert Quillian on Monday.
Garner’s trial date was set to begin no later than July 7 if he secures bail by then. His bail was set at $500,000 a week ago at his initial Superior Court hearing April 28. He remains in custody at Mason County Jail.
At that hearing last week, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jason Richards said three of the female victim told investigators their panties were stolen during the burglaries. Richards also alleged that Garner had a foot fetish.
