Man catches burglary in the act

A man told police he witnessed three men burglarizing his house at the 100 block of Beeman Street Wednesday afternoon. The man said he had left his house to run errands when he saw three men he used to associate with standing at the corner of a nearby street.

Because he believed the three men were involved in breaking one of his home’s windows, he decided to circle the block and walk back to the residence. According to the police report, the man walked back to his house taking a different route and when he walked through his front door he found the three men standing inside his house rummaging through his things.

The man told police he stood there for a minute and then let out an expletive, which caused the men to flee from his house. The man said he chased them until he reached East Bacon Street.

The man told police $45 was taken from his residence, his couch was moved away from one of his windows and the screen attached to the window was damaged. The man said everything beside the window was locked before he left the house.
