Police nabbed a burglar crawling through the window of a home Tuesday after an alert neighbour spotted a suspicious man and called for help.
The man, 38, was riding a bike and carrying a backpack when he arrived in the area of Homedale Boulevard and Wyandotte Street around 2 p.m. and walked into the back yard of a home, according to police.
After getting a report from the neighbour, officers arrived and found the man crawling through a basement window. He was carrying break-and-enter tools and several stolen items, including a laptop computer and other electronics.
The bike he had been riding was also stolen, police say. He has been charged with break and enter, possession of break and enter tools, and possession of stolen property.
