Officers responded to a report of suspicious activity in the 5200 block of Milwaukee Street.  The caller advised that a residence had just been entered by a male subject, and they knew that the previous residents had vacated the premises weeks ago.  Officers found a rear door to the residence open, and after clearing the building, they found no one inside.  Officer's had a good description of the suspect, and after canvassing the area, located Tyson Cole.  Initially Cole told police he had no idea what they were making reference to, with respect to the dwelling being entered.   Further interviews placed Cole inside the dwelling, and he decided to run from police.  After the foot pursuit ended, officers located a Turboknife that Cole had in his possession.  Cole would later stated that he did not think it was a problem to go into the residence, as it did not have a "For Sale or Rent" sign posted.
