Also yesterday, a burglary suspect returned to the scene of his crime and was subsequently busted:
A suspect stole the victim’s car keys during a burglary and returned an hour later to steal the victim’s car. On 2/12/14, at approximately 5:00 a.m., a homeowner in the 400 block of 22 Av woke to find a burglar in his house. The homeowner gave chase but lost the suspect.
The suspect stole multiple items, including car keys. At approximately 6:00 a.m., the embolden suspect returned to the scene of the burglary and attempted to steal the homeowner’s car. Officers quickly arrived in the area. The suspect fled on foot and officers gave chase.
After a short foot pursuit the suspect was cornered in a nearby yard. Officers found the suspect and arrested him without incident. The victim positively identified the suspect as the burglar.
