Jose Guadalupe Ramirez, 40, is facing felony charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and cocaine possession, and a misdemeanor charge of battery.

An Immokalee man is accused of stealing an acquaintance’s keys and driving to his house for an unsuccessful rendezvous with the man’s wife.

Jose Guadalupe Ramirez, 40, of the 2600 block of Mariana Way, is facing felony charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and cocaine possession, and a misdemeanor charge of battery.

The victim told Collier County sheriff’s deputies that she was sleeping in bed with her two young sons around 2 a.m. Sunday when a man she knew only as “Lupe” entered her bedroom and pulled the blankets off her, according to an arrest report. He told her that her husband was drunk in the truck outside.

When the victim told him to bring her husband to the couch, Lupe — later identified as Ramirez — told her he had really come to see her, and had her husband’s car and house keys.

The victim told Ramirez she was calling the Sheriff’s Office and he needed to leave, reports said. For safety, she and her two sons went into the bathroom and closed the door.

The victim’s husband told authorities that he had been at a relative’s house, where Ramirez, an acquaintance, asked to borrow his car, reports said. He told Ramirez no, and placed the keys on a dresser. Later, Ramirez took the keys and said he was going to see a girlfriend.

When Ramirez was gone, the husband received a call from his wife telling him to come home. Ramirez then came back and gave back his keys. It wasn’t until the husband arrived home that he learned that Ramirez had broken into his home, reports said.
