Police were on the scene in two minutes and set up a perimeter around the home. As they began a search of the yard, the suspect, later identified as Brody Lewis, leaped the back fence and headed toward Sirah Court, the report said. Lewis was arrested after short pursuit.
Officers determined Lewis had gained entry into the residence through an open window and had stolen items belonging to the homeowner; a vehicle associated to Lewis was located on Riesling Drive and impounded as evidence.
The investigation continues, according to the report. Meanwhile, police are commending the woman who called them.
"It is because of alert citizens, like this, who report suspicious circumstances that this criminal was located and arrested before he could victimize someone else in our community," the report said.
