According to court records filed today, a resident in the 400 block of W. 59th Terrace watched a man try to open a sliding door on the west side of his home. The resident called police. Officers working undercover nearby responded. The officers tracked the suspect to a nearby house, where they saw a window screen had been cut and a window had been opened. Officers and a K-9 officer assisted and the suspect was found hiding in a bedroom closet. He suffered a dog bite and was taken into custody. The defendant has robbery, burglary and other convictions so it was unlawful for him to possess a firearm.
Prosecutors have requested a bond of $50,000.
