A Nokomis Court resident called for police Saturday afternoon after spotting a burglar inside her garage. The teen was attempting to steal a bicycle, but dropped it as the homeowner chased after him.

The victim said the suspect was with several other teens. She said two of his friends also dropped bicycles as she yelled at them.

Officers found a group of teens walking on Odana Rd. The victim identified one as being the intruder who had been in her garage. He was arrested for burglary.

Around the same time as the Nokomis Court call, a nearby Heritage Circle resident reported a group of similarly described teens had just damaged the screen to his patio door.
